1 John 5:3-5
In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
God has desired the obedience of His people since the beginning. Instructions were given to Adam and Eve, the stone tablets were made to guide Isreal in how to live and served as the foundations for the creations of “the law”. In all this, Jesus comes as the fulfillment of the law. Obedience continues to be commanded as our direction lies thorugh Christ alone. This is a beautiful verse that links together obedience and the victory to overcome the world through Jesus. In believing in Christ, we become obedient to God and communicate our love for him.
Jocy’s Commentary :
What I realized this past week is how attentive we need to be with Holy Spirit of God. It’s God in Spirit. A real Person. He is the best Person you could ever meet, yes you can’t see him… YET, but He is surely living and I know He is with me- even now.
As it says in the above commentary, that “…Jesus comes as the fulfillment of the law. Obedience continues to be commanded as our direction lies through Christ alone.” I found it incredible because Jesus came to obey the law, he submitted under it, was perfect, died perfect, and sent us the Holy Spirit to live in us after he rose!
So who do we obey? We obey the Holy Spirit!
Do we obey the religious laws? We obey the Holy Spirit! & He is FREEDOM.
Do we obey every rule at the church were at? No, because not everything is from God.
Do we take in every single word a preacher says? No, because were human and we mess up.
Always go to God’s word first, always always always!
His word is powerful, perfect and clear!
Don’t let ANYONE decieve you.
Not your friends, your pastors, your leaders, no one.
There are wolves dressed up as sheep.
You’d be surprised – cause they are pretending to be sheep but inside they are ready to devour you, their intentions are not holy and desire to mess you up. Be careful, and always pray! By prayer you will be able to discern the evil that is there, discern motives, all this by the Holy Spirit flowing out of you and showing you to PROTECT YOU.
Love you all! ❤
Be UNIQUE, and don’t follow the crowd. Don’t follow what EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING. BE YOUU!!! That’s one big thing I have been learning – Be You
