DEEP SHEET: Sermon Study Questions
1.   Why does God begin by stating his relationship to his people? How does obedience to commands flow out of a personal relationship of trust?
2.   What does it mean to say that relating must come through reading? How have you seen people try to relate to God apart from his revelation?
3.   What does God remind the people of in v. 2? How is this meant to motivate what comes in vv. 3-17?
4.   How does this prologue to the Ten Commandments teach us not to rob the motivation from works or the purpose from grace?
5.   How should the Christian, living in the New Covenant, relate to the Ten Commandments? How do these four key words help us: Christ, Spirit, Love, and Heart?
