Now therefore FEAR THE LORD, AND SERVE HIM IN SINCERITY AND IN TRUTH. SERVE YE THE LORD. AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD. Joshua 24:14-15. This isn't an option, a small request, a thing I'D LIKE YOU TO DO, this is a most Loving Command to His Faithful Followers. When a Father tell his young son, "Don't go down to the end of the street and play in the Interstate, it will kill you" yes, that's a Command, an Order, from The Authority, AND it is given in the greatest Love posable to keep his son safe. The Lord tells us many like things for our own health and safety. We should just take His Word for it, Believe He Knows what He's talking about, and Walk in His Way, even if it's in blind obedience with no understanding as to WHY He said it. To a brand-new baby Christian, they may have no understanding about the 10 Commandments. To a well "Seasoned" Believer, EVERYTHING about the 10 Commandments may make perfect sense. As we read the Bible and study His Word, we will Grow in Understanding of WHY He says what He says. And that builds Faith that Our God really does know what He's talking about. The more your Faith Grows, with Obedience, the more "hard" things the Lord can ask of you. Eventually, you will grow into Absolute, Utter, Complete Obedience and whatever the Lord asks of you will be "just normal stuff", as you ask "How high"? on the way up. This Life of not just walking with Christ, BUT SEEKING THE DEPTHS OF CHRIST is open and available to EVERY Believer. But most won't seek a Life FILLED with Holiness, Righteousness, Purity and Patience. As the Lord brings His Judgment into "the church", only the True Believers will seek out His Life To The Fullest, in them. You'll see the Lord taking care of His, as He takes away the phonies, the fake, the liars and unbelievers from your presence. Many you thought were Believers, are not. Some you thought couldn't possibly be Believers, are. Judgment IS starting at church. Which God will YOU follow, to, Be Blessed?
