Do you know why God gave us his 10 commandments?
Because in the beginning, He only gave us one command.
We didn’t obey, that 1 command; we were disobedient, and sin entered the world.
So there were consequences, to sin entering the world.
We now had both bad, and good.
Not just good, when we only needed one command.
Man naturally obeyed Him, originally.
We were obedient to God’s authority, because we knew He loved us, and we knew that He knew, what was best for us.
We didn’t question Him.
After all, He did create us.
The thought to question, and not just accept God’s authority, was implanted into our heads, into our thoughts, by the clever Devil.
And Man began to question,
Man cannot just accept, that plainly and simply, there is right and there is wrong.
God’s way and the Devil’s way…
Obedience and disobedience.
You have been given free will, so you can choose.
After we sinned, God had to then give us 10 commandments, to cover all the sinful things, that Man, had naturally started to do.
He wanted to give us, the opportunity to again follow Him, and obey Him.
Being Obedient is a very hard thing for a person to do.
Because Man’s sinful nature immediately screams, I am not obeying anyone.
Because obedience means a different thing to fallen man and that is they think obedience is unjust and unfair usually.
Man wants you to obey him, so he gains Power Prestige, Position, Pride, Popularity and Payment.
But these are not things of God.
Obedience means a different thing, to God.
He wants you to obey him freely. Choosing to obey him, being joyful and confident in your choice.
Not because you are forced to, or because you are scared of what is going to happen to you, if you don’t, or because you are tricked into obeying.
You obey God, because you want to…
Because you Love Him firstly…
Because you respectfully fear him…
Because you admire him…
Because your grateful to him…
Because your thankful…
Because he is your Daddy…
Because you want to please Him…
“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
If it makes Him happy, why wouldn’t you want to do whatever it takes.
Obedience to God is easy, when you know that the Holy Spirit, is God, and lives inside you.
So, once you recognise that deception causing disobedience, was Satan’s very first weapon, and his entrance, into man.
It’s easy to see that by disobeying God, you obey the enemy.
Obey or disobey.
