But sometimes we need to ask the reason it’s challenging to keep or obey what God says. Why do we find it easy to disobey than to obey? It’s somehow.
Example, doing good is fine. When we do good, it brings happiness, joy and even eternal life.
Yet we find it difficult to do that good that will bring good to us. You see that this is an irony.
When we keep the word of God, we do not keep them for God. We do it for the sake of our good.
The word of God is like a guide for every Christian not to be misled.
So, when we keep His word, it’s means that we are invariably walking on the right path.
Despite these, we find very challenging to do so. The reason is that we see the word of God as a burden.
It should not be a burden to us. We have to see as an advice regulating our behavior.
Keeping God’s word is a testament to the love we have for Jesus.
What happens When We keep His Word
Therefore, when we keep His word, it is the only way to to show how much we truly love Jesus.
In the gospel Jesus says,’ “They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me”.
Therefore, we keep His word because the word is not just ordinary. It comes from God.
So, we do it because it came from Him and would not want Him to be angry. We keep it to make Him happy too.
We try to make our parents happy not that we are always free to do whatever they say but because we want to show them how much we love to see them happy. Let us do the same for God.
So, when we keep His word, we do it because the word is coming from a divine source. We do it to make this our God happy always.
