You and the Sabbath

I know there are some that think there are no more laws that we need to follow.

For Salvation there is no other way than through the blood of Jesus, there is NO law that you can follow and make it to the Father by following it.

Salvation is free from the Father through Christ Jesus.

The Ten Commandments are NOT the Mosaic Law.

God gave the Ten Commandments for our health and a better life.

You can ask how and why.

Each day as you read the newspaper or watch tv you can see many things wrong in the world today.

Keep a list of the Ten Commandments in front of you and you can equate each news report to one of the Ten Commandments…Exodus 20:1-17

I am talking about any report from any country, we can see the connection to the Ten Commandments.

God did not write them in stone to last forever just to read now and then. He gave them to the human race that we can all live better by obeying them,

God gave them because of His love for us and we can keep them because of our love for Him.

Paul said that in Christ we have the freedom to do anything but if there is no value to it or if it dishonors God, what good is it?

Jesus said…John 14:15

“If you love me, you will obey what I command.

Why would we want to dishonor God? He loved us enough to give His Son to die for our sins. and to give Him our day of rest is no chore; if we love Him. We can do our working, shopping, eating out, our amusement and anything else we have on our mind, we have six other days to do this.

Jesus is infinitely superior to anything you give up.

John reduced all the Commandments to one “ love “ but we as humans want to take everything to the limit and at times beyond.

I know Christians claim they love, OH; I love chocolate but I can take it or leave it and a lot of times that is how they treat God.

As Christians we need to distinguish the difference between our want and our need. We tend to take care of our wants and place them before God.

I know someone who has been doing something that I feel is anti to the Word and I said something to them and the answer I got was…well; I guess I am a poor example and they are still doing what they were. This is where the pull of the world is greater than the love for God.

There are so many things that happen to people in their life, do you ever consider it as being correction from God; to make you wake up.

I would say generally you write it off as dumb luck, bad breaks, luck of the draw, someone else was the cause of it or any number of other excuses. Stop and take a serious look at the life you are living and it just might be God bringing correction to what you are doing. I am not saying everything is punishment, some of it is from our own stupidity and some could be that God is using you as an example to others.

When we honor God we need to do it all day, every day and not just at the times we want to…Luke 6:46

There are many things we do against our brothers and sisters but do you think before you do anything against God?…Matt. 10:28

How you live your life can make all the difference in your life.

1 Timothy 6:15b-16

God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.

Dear brothers and sisters I pray we can all honor God the way He should be, you will never get anything better but you can get worst. Look to God for everything and give thanks for what He gives you.
