Obeying All Scripture
Matthew 5:19

 
The Upward Look
    © Copyright 2012, Max D. Hutto,

“Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:19 NIV

All of God’s Word is equally important and must be respected and obeyed. One cannot pick and choose which commands to obey and which to ignore or what Scripture to believe and what to throw out. All commands must be obeyed and all Scripture must be believed. Obedience will follow when one truly encounters God, experiences God, and comes to know God through Jesus our Savior and Lord. Every believer must be careful not to lead others astray by being disobedient to God’s Word. Every word and deed of a believer can influence other people in their relationship with God.

Lord Jesus, help me to be obedient to Your Word. Let my example lead others to You.
