(1 JOHN 5:2-3) This is how we know that we love the children of GOD and carry out HIS commandments. In fact, this is love for GOD: TO KEEP HIS commands and HIS commands are not burdensome.
An awesome scripture that shows and demonstrates faithfulness to HIM our LORD. In today’s society obedience has dissapeared to a point were it nearly does not exist, not only with children, but with adults also, the problem with adults is that we now are accountable for our own actions.
In the beginning God set up 10 commandments that we need to follow, HE set these up because HE loved us so much that if we don’t keep the commands it would only give satan a way in to your life and destroy it. Now MANY people stray,,,,eg lets say in adultery, and they don’t see any harm in that, but really how much harm they cause when they get caught and split family’s and children apart that then causes more pain and more hatred, revenge and most of the time more adultery.
(1 JOHN 2 :3-6) “we know that we have come to know HIM if we keep HIS commands. Whoever says I KNOW HIM but does not do what HE commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys HIS word, love for GOD is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in HIM; who ever claims to live in HIM must live as JESUS did.”
HOW DO WE GLORIFY HIS NAME? STAY TRUE TO HIS WORD…….
OBEDIENCE must start with us, If we have the SPIRIT of the HOLY SPIRIT living with in us then following GODS commands would not be very hard at all, as the SPIRIT will keep us on track, and as we sin we will want to turn from it, not encourage it. Remember sin separates us from GOD and what HE did on the cross for us all. satan uses everything in his power allocated to him to destroy YOU, he does not care for YOU and would not even call YOU by Your name.
(1PETER 2-12) ” Live such good lives among the pagens that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify GOD on the day HE visits us.”
Why is it hard to open avenues of blessings for ourselves…….I wonder that myself.
I have said previously nothing has ever burdened my heart as much as someone loosing salvation. I wish this upon no person of this world, but sometimes GOD lets us carry these burdens to keep us in line with HIS word.
GOD is loving and obedience to HIM should be our main focus on this world as if it is not, there may not be room in heaven, JUST REMEMBER GOD ALLOWED THE ANGELS FREE WILL NOT TO BE OBEDIENT TO HIM AND KICKED THEM OUT OF HEAVEN, HOW MUCH MORE MUST WE BE OBEDIENT TO HIM FOR OUR SALVATION.
REMEMBER THIS IS NOT A WATERED DOWN, JUST GIVE YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST AND BE SAVED SPEECH. there is a whole bible to put into your heart and satan does not want you to know the whole truth and that is why most sermons will not cover salvation.
So Faith is necessary to please GOD (HEBREWS 11:6) if our faith is genuine and true , we will live a life style characterised by righteousness set by us by JESUS. We obey HIS commands not because we have to but because we want to.
WHEN WE OBEY THE LORD WE CAN LIVE A LIFE OF JOY WITHOUT THE SHAME ROOTED DEEPLY IN THE LORD AND BE CONFIDENT IN OUR ETERNAL HOPE.
Our obedience is actually our insurance that we truly know GOD
When GODS children obey there heavenly FATHER, HE is glorified. JESUS also told us it is for others to see your good deeds and glorify your FATHER IN heaven (MATTHEW 5:16). performing good deeds requires obedience to the one who calls us to good deeds.
A CHRISTIAN TESTIMONY OF HOLLINESS IS A STRONG WITNESS THAT GOD IS AT WORK IN THE WORLD….
BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE LORD I PRAY WE STAY TRUE TO HIS WORD NO MATTER WHAT THIS WORLD TRIES TO PLACE INFRONT OF US.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
WE ARE IN END TIMES……. DON’T LOOSE YOUR SALVATION…………
