Do not forget the commandments of GOD
Today, many people talk about the fact that we are free from the law and that is true. The only way a person can get to Heaven is by putting their faith and trust in what Jesus Christ did for us. He suffered, died, and paid the penalty of our sin in our place. He rose from the dead and was seen by hundreds of people. The only way you can get to Heaven is by calling on Him and asking Him to be your Lord, Saviour, and God.
However, that does not discount the commandments of God. God has given us commandments and statues in order to benefit our lives. However, we are not saved by keeping the commandments; commandments give us God’s view point of life. If you want to know God’s opinion, study the law of God.
In this passage, we are told to keep the law of God close (verse 21). If we do, it will benefit us in several ways:
1. It will lead you as you travel.
2. It will guard you as you sleep.
3. It will talk to you when you are awake.
4. It will be a lamp to enlighten you along your path.
5. It will be a light to show you where to go and how to avoid tragedy.
6. It will show you how to really live.
Do not forget the commandments of God.
