Obey Jesus!

Obey Jesus!


Hello. My message to you is: obey Jesus! Jesus said on multiple occasions, both explicitly
and implicitly, that he had taught the teachings of God, and that his teachings are the teachings
of God. To highlight a few instances out of the many
times that Jesus taught this, he said, quote, for I have not spoken of myself; but the Father
who sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak, unquote. Jesus said, quote, my doctrine is not mine,
but his who sent me, unquote. Jesus also said, quote, he who sent me is
true, and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him, unquote. At the end of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus
said that whoever hears his teachings and does them is like a wise person who built
a house on a rock, and the rain, floods and winds came upon the house, but it didn’t
fall, quote, because it was founded on a rock, unquote. However, Jesus said that whoever hears his
teachings but doesn’t do them is like a foolish person who built a house on sand,
and the rain, floods and winds came upon the house, and it fell: and, quote, great was
the fall of it, unquote. Indeed, as the apostle James wrote, quote,
be doers of the word, and not hearers only. Hearers who are not doers deceive themselves,
unquote. This sentiment of needing to be doers of Jesus’s
teachings is further stressed throughout the gospels. Jesus said that the people who obey his teachings
are his family, and he said that whoever hears his teachings and does them is blessed. Jesus said that we will abide in his love
if we keep his commandments, just as he, quote, has kept his Father’s commandments and abides
in his love, unquote. Jesus said that the ones who do his teachings
are the ones who love him, and he said that those who don’t do what he taught don’t
love him. Jesus said that we are his friends if we do
what he commanded, and he said that we should not be calling him our Lord if we are not
obeying him. The apostle John continually stressed the
importance of obedience to Jesus. Keeping in mind that Jesus said that his teachings
are the teachings of God, John wrote that anyone who claims to know God but doesn’t
keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. He wrote that the people who keep God’s
commandments dwell in God, and God in them. He wrote that to love God means to keep his
commandments, and in his second epistle he expressed the same thought, writing, quote,
this is love, that we walk according to his commandments, unquote. John also wrote that whoever transgresses
and doesn’t abide in Jesus’s doctrine does not have God, but whoever does abide
in Jesus’s doctrine has both the Father and the Son. So with all that said, I want to ask you an
important question: are you obeying Jesus? If you’re not doing Jesus’s teachings, then
read the books containing his teachings, which are the four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke
and John), so that you will learn what Jesus taught. Then start doing his teachings. May God bless you.
