Jesus Commands Us
Disobedience is not what we are saved for. It is what we are saved from. Those who believe otherwise are disastrously mistaken. Faith without obedience is not faith.
Romans 1:5: By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed, 16:26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
Acts 6:7: And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.
John 14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Luke 6:46: And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Acts 1:1: The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. 6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 1:12: Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day*s journey.
Acts 2:1: And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
Jesus commanded and they obeyed. Do we obey Him?
