The Ten Commandments- The First Commandment
Jesus said “Live on in My love. You will live in My love if you keep My Commandments, even I have kept My Father’s Commandments, and I live in His love.”
We believe in God so we must do what God asks of us, we must keep His law. God gave Moses His law, the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai.
The First commandment- Love God and Put Him First in Our Lives
Exodus 20: 1-3
And God spoke all these words, saying "I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.You shall have no other gods before Me."
God wants us to put Him first in our lives. God wants us to serve Him not because He needs help, but so He can bless us.
God put us into this world to love and serve Him. The will of God must be put first in our lives. When we put God first in our lives, we are happier. When we sin, we cut ourselves off from God and the source of true peace. Jesus set us an example of how to live obedient lives.
Jesus kept His Father's commandments. He wants us to become perfect like His Father in heaven is perfect. Doing the right thing isn't always easy. By loving God and putting Him first in our lives by keeping His commandments shows that we are the children of God.
We owe Him our true prayer and worship. By doing this, we show that we belong to Him and want to love and serve Him everyday of our life.
God alone deserves our highest worship. We worship Him by adoring Him, believing in Him, hoping in Him, loving Him and praying to Him.
I love You God!
