Deuteronomy 8:11 – Keep My Commandments

Deuteronomy 8:11
11 Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:

-How often do we “remember” the Lord?  Notice what Deuteronomy 8:11 says about remembering Him; to keep His commandments.  There is a great misconception in our society that acknowledging God is all it takes to please Him but that could not be further from the truth; if you claim that the Lord is your God while living life any way you choose, God is as displeased as if you told Him to His face that you hated Him.  It’s the same idea that Jesus expresses in John 14:15 when He says, “if ye love me, keep my commandments.”  To love the Lord is not just to tell Him you love Him (although that is certainly a good thing); but to truly love the Lord is to obey Him.  Do not be deceived by so-called Christians who “honoureth [The Lord] with their lips; but their heart is far from [Him].” (Matthew 15:8) Continue in the Lord’s word that you may be His disciples indeed. (John 8:31)
