GOD’s hardest law to obey and follow

(Sharing Time)

When Jesus was confronted by the Pharisees, one from their group, a lawyer, asked, “Master what’s the greatest commandment of God we need to follow?”Jesus answered, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and the great commandment. And second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” (Matthew22:37-39).

WHEN He says with ALL!, that means we need to love God with our ALL! And, to be able to love our Lord with our ALL!, we need to love Him only, and nobody else. That means, we can’t love God, then love another ‘God,’ of ours, as well.TheBible says, “No one can serve two masters, for you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and the mammon. (6:24)

GOD’S HARDEST LAW TO OBEY

AND, what’s the hardest law of God to obey and follow?

Listen, you!

“But, I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute.”(Matthew5:44)

Can we do this, as well?

So hard, right?

This is the reason we have to let our human will die, and follow God’s will only, from now on.

And, we can only start doing this through Repentance, which is the key to our own Eternal Salvation.

For without Repentance, it’s impossible for human beings to enter the Kingdom of God. JESUS, while here on the earth more than 2,000 years ago, preached this Gospel: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”(Matthew 4:17); “Repent then, and turn to GOD, so that your sins may be wiped out, and that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” (Acts 3:19).

If we use our physical mind, it’s but impossible to love those who do bad things against us— like, probably, stealing our money, or, worse, stealing our own wife. Tell me, will you love and forgive someone who’ve just stolen or kidnapped your wife for a ransom? No way! That’s always our incensed reaction. You’ll even kill him if you happen to see him, right?

But, this is the will of God to love our enemy.

When God tells us to love our enemy, that means don’t hate them, but pray for them that they might even be enlightened, and might even turn out to be amongst the few repentant souls, in the end.

In that manner, they might still change their mindsets from that of an evil to that of the righteous.
