Lesson 15 The Commands of CHRIST
The commands of CHRIST we have looked at so far have been: repentance, believe, new birth, receiving the HOLY GHOST, following JESUS, prayer, faith, searching the Scripture, and letting your light shine. Let´s continue….
10. Supreme Love to GOD
The Christian is to love and serve GOD in every aspect of his life.
Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
Matthew 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
11. Our Duty to Men in Authority
As Christians we are to love and obey those in authority over us. We are to pray for them as well. This command is not always easy, and I must admit that for me it can be conditional. For example, if those in authority over me are godless, evil men who would require me to be disobedient to GOD then it is my duty to obey GOD, not them.
Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
12. Our Duty to Our Neighbors
Remember, your neighbor is not just the family next door. Your neighbor is anyone and everyone who is in need.
Matthew 19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Luke 6:31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
