JESUS calls us to OBEDIENCE

 


JESUS taught us to pray, and obey:

Matthew 6:10

King James Version

10 Thy kingdom come, 

Thy will be done in earth, 

as it is in heaven.


Why is it important to obey God?

What good could it do?

It's a call to love.

If we love God, we will obey Him.

JESUS is precise about this call to obedience.

The following verses testify to that:

John 14:15

King James Version

15 If ye love me

keep my commandments.


John 14:21

King James Version

21 He that hath my commandments, 

and keepeth them, 

he it is that loveth me

and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, 

and I will love him, 

and will manifest myself to him.


John 14:23

King James Version

23 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

If a man love me, 

he will keep my words

and my Father will love him, 

and we will come unto him, 

and make our abode with him.


John 15:14

King James Version

14 Ye are my friends, 

if ye do whatsoever I command you.


John 15:16

King James Version

16 Ye have not chosen me, 

but I have chosen you, 

and ordained you, 

that ye should go and bring forth fruit

and that your fruit should remain: 

that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, 

he may give it you.


John 7:17

King James Version

17 If any man will do his will, 

he shall know of the doctrine, 

whether it be of God, 

or whether I speak of myself.


Luke 6:46

King James Version

46 And why call ye me, 

Lord, Lord, 

and do not the things which I say?


Luke 11:28

King James Version

28 But he said, 

Yea rather, 

blessed are they that hear the word of God, 

and keep it.


Matthew 7:21

King James Version

21 Not every one that saith unto me, 

Lord, Lord, 

shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; 

but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
