We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word.
"Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city." -Revelation 22:14
Jesus taught His disciples, "If you love me, keep my commandments."* During His time with the disciples, Jesus instructed them on how to pursue God. Such authoritative and pure instruction is hard for us to imagine apart from Christ. We live in the era of qualifying statements, exceptions, and asterisks. It is plain, it is essential, that we carry out our Lord's commandments. We must not be hearers only - or what do we gain? We must be doers, workers in Christ's field, looking forward to the promise of His coming and the invitation to enter through the gates - by the narrow way. No one shall enter without Christ's express permission. No one shall enter in by some other way.** There is no wall to scale to crash the party. Help us be diligent in obedience to your commands oh Lord.
** John 10
