Commands of Christ, Part 1. (268)
Jesus said, “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (). But just what are these commands?
Today, Nathan Caldwell joins Keith Heltsley in the first part, of a 2 part discussion on top commands that Jesus told his followers to do. We compare our lists, based on a blog article located at: What are the commands of Christ?
In no particular order, we begin with...
* Be Born Again
“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” ().
“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” ().
* Follow Me
“And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” ().
* Baptize My Disciples
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” ().
* Make Disciples
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations . . . teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” ().
* Honor God’s Law
“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill” ().
* Seek God’s Kingdom
“Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” ().
* Ask, Seek, Knock
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” ().
