Keeping God’s Words

Several times in the upper room discourse, you might notice that Jesus said something like the imperative in John 14:15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” Same chapter, v. 21, then says, “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me,” v. 23, “If a man love me, he will keep my words,” v. 24, “He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings,” 15:10, “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love,” 17:6, “thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word,” 1 John 2:3, “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments,” and 1 John 3:22, “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” There are several more like these samples. God wants His Word “kept.” When believers stop believing, practicing, and practicing God’s Word, it falls by the wayside, so it is not kept, and people, families, nations, and the world suffer.
