Laws... every society, every group, even families...have rules or laws that govern their actions and to which the members agree.  In the Bible, God lays down some very specific expectations for His people, laws or commandments to which every believer ascribes and tries to live out.  We don't always do so well, and there are consequences to breaking the laws, consequences we cannot avoid.   God's laws are perfect, and lay a foundation for the laws of nature as well.  His laws are the highest possible "organizational rules" there can be, perfectly just and perfectly sound.  From His laws we know not to take what does not belong, or to protect life, or to be able to assemble together as family honoring each other and providing comfort and covering.  But, His laws are impossible for sinful man to completely and always keep.  So, just what is the purpose of the 10 Commandments and other commandments He gave us through Jesus?  Deacon Joshua explains that the authority of the law and the ability to keep it perfectly come from the same source...God, Himself.
