When Jesus came, he asked will you follow me?
He told us why, what to do. He said those who were his sheep would keep his fathers commands and decrees. Then he said come now follow me. He said the road is narrow the road is hard many are called, but few will find the way, come now follow me.
Then he gave one more command “Do as I have done.” So what did Jesus Do? Now you ask me what are they these commands these decrees? There are Ten there are Two which hold the ten and one He gave at the last come do as I have done.
I wonder then what he will say, to all of us when we stand before him on that day. That day so many can not wait for. That day called dreadful; that great and terrible day; when the mountains melt, the sea boils away the day of judgement when it comes. Will we hear well done, my good my faithful servant, or will we be shocked to hear depart from me I know you not. Will you or I cry out, but we did this, we did that, all in your name lord. Still he will say depart from me you did it for your-self not me.
So I ask you now to think to pray:
Do we keep his way? Do we do as he did then. I ask you did he forgive and forget your sin all your misdeeds then cast them away as far as the east is from the west? He said, never to be remembered again or did he say I will forgive, but not forget as you for that I can not do, no I will not forget?
It places us all in a quandary for are we really who we think or are we not as proper holy pious as we feel?
Jesus said love and bless your enemy, love those who hate you. One of Gods decrees says support your leaders and obey the laws. Another says do not provoke your children to anger watch TV.. we see it all this on the daily news ; sadly friend its in our homes. For we teach our children to hate others, disrespect someone because of color,and always remember the sins committed by the fathers in the past
So ask yourself what would he say to us? What will he say to you? Did you know retaining hate is wrong, teaching hate it is worse? And there are some who teach that hate angry , and rage are good. But God says do not let the sun set on your anger cast it off. For it retaining it gives Satan a foothold.
So God said Be holy for I am Holy; Paul said strive for that prize that crown.
