But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 1John 2:5 NKJV
It is not hard to keep and obey God’s commandments. There are tons of reasons why we have to keep and obey God’s commandments. Here are the first excellent seven reasons. First, God saved us and chosen us, obeying God is our manifestation of our gratitude from His great Agape Love for us. Second, we are given the privilege to do His will being elected by God. Third, it is the practice of our faith for we know that faith without work or obedience is dead by itself and faith is completed by its works. Fourth, it is for our own good if we obey God’s instructions and directions diligently. They will help you live a long and prosperous life. Fifth, we obey and keep His words sincerely because we desire to glorify and honor Him as our Father. Sixth, we obey Him with humility because we acknowledge His Kingship and we humbly recognized that respecting and obeying God is what life is all about and it is the purpose of life and it is our whole duty to serve Him as our Creator. Seventh, this is the greatest and most sacred reason why we would keep and obey His words for us, it is because we love God with our whole heart, whole soul, whole mind and whole strength. Our obedience is our way of worship and adoration to God. There is no such life that is perfect and complete than the life expend in serving the only one true God.
