New Testament Commands
The plan of God is to end evil and suffering forever (Exodus 34:6-7; Matthew 13:37-43; I Corinthians 15:24-28; Galatians 6:7-8; 1 Timothy 1:5; Revelation 21-22). The ultimate purpose of God in all His present dealings with man is to bring him back to the place where he was before the fall (beloved fellowship) and free him of all possibility of failing in the future. “The object and purpose of our instruction and charge is that all believers would be filled with charity (love) that comes from a pure heart, and a clear conscience, and genuine trust faith.” —1 Timothy 1:5
There are 1,050 commands in the New Testament’s instruction for which Christians are to obediently yield. They cover every phase of a person's life in his relationship to God and his fellowmen, now and hereafter. If obediently yielded to, they will bring rich rewards here and forever; if not yielded, they will bring consequences. They are not to be confused with the 10 commandments which were abolished along with the law of Moses; (see the book of Galatians or Eighty-six Old and New Covenant Contrasts).
God’s Love In His Commandments
Psalm 119:127-128: Because I love your commands more than gold, more than pure gold, and because I consider all your precepts right, I hate every wrong path.
What’s your attitude towards God’s commands? Do you fear them? Do you resent them? Do you try to get away from them?
Remember, God gave His commands to us not to create problems for us but to solve them, not to harm us but to help us. God’s love is in His commands. They are given to save us from ourselves, to save us from evil, to show us the way out of our difficulties and our problems.
The psalmist had learned that, that’s why he said to God, “I love your commands more that gold, more than pure gold.” What is more precious than gold? Nothing in this created world. But God’s commands are infinitely more precious and the psalmist had learned that. Instead of running from God’s commands, resenting them, obeying them reluctantly, he said, “I love your commands more than pure gold.”
And then he said, “Because I consider all Your precepts right, I hate every wrong path.” You see, when we love God’s commands and obey them; automatically they reveal to us what is wrong. They show us how to distinguish between good and evil, between what is beneficial and what is harmful. And when we are walking in the light of God’s commands, they keep us from everything harmful, from everything hurtful, from every wrong path.
A Response to God’s Love
Obedience to His instruction is in response to God’s Love (John ; ; 1 John 5:2-3). It is not to ‘earn’ more ‘merits,’ acceptance, love, or become more justified or lovable. God already loves you 100 percent just as you are, no matter what. And if we are truly born-again, we then already have the righteousness of Jesus the Christ, by trusting (faith) (2 Cor. ). We are justified (acquitted) freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24; Eph. 2:8-9; Gal. 2:16; 3:10; 2 Tim. 1:9; Tit. 3:5; Heb. 6:1; Rom. 9). Y’shua the Messiah (Jesus the Christ) has already accomplished all that is necessary for us to bear fruit (“good works”) (Eph. 2:10; James 2:14-26)! Obedience to His commands is in response to His love!
If you’re having trouble obediently yielding to God’s instruction, pray for Him to help you accept His love (1 John -15).
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” - 2 Cor. 9:8; See also Romans 5:5
God’s “Grace” Defined (“chairo” original Greek word): “God’s divine influence upon a person’s heart [spirit] and its reflection in the person’s life.”
God’s grace is the power of God's love, affecting the person from the inside-out (versus “the law,” from the outside-in; see Hebrews 8). And grace is always associated in the Bible with the big-heartedness, love, compassion, mercy, and kindness of one individual to another, whether it be person to person or God to person.
Grace from God is His power coming to a person out of God’s pure kindness and unmerited favor to enable the person to do with ease what s/he could never accomplish on his or her own. (See also John 15:5.)
And please note that anyone may:
- Receive grace in vain (2 Cor. 6:1).
- Frustrate it in his or her life (Galatians ).
- Fall from it (Galatians 1:6-8; Galatians 5:4).
- Fail of the grace of God (Hebrews ).
- Turn it into lasciviousness (Jude 1:4).
- Sin in spite of it (Romans 6:1).
- Continue or discontinue in it (Acts ).
- Minister it to others (1 Peter ).
- Grow or not grow in it (2 Peter ).
- Receive or reject it (John ; Rev. 22:17; Hebrews ; James 4:6).
The Righteous Requirement of The Law
Romans 8:4 teaches, “He [Jesus] condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to destroy the law of Moses or the
writings of the prophets. No, I came to fulfill them. I assure you, until heaven and earth
disappear, even the smallest detail of God's law will remain until its
purpose is achieved. So if you break the smallest commandment and teach
others to do the same, you will be the least in the
God blesses by His grace the sinner when s/he humbles himself and calls upon God for mercy. And this cannot be done until the sinner turns to God and permits the grace of God to be manifest to him or her. When we, as confessed sinners, choose to accept the work of Y’shua the Messiah (Jesus the Christ) and accept Him as our personal Savior, God is free to forgive at that moment because the Christ has already paid the debt for us. At that moment an extraordinary exchange takes place: By faith (trusting), we are the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Cor. ), and therefore we can produce right fruit!
The Amplified Bible best describes righteousness as being made right with God and then consistently conforming to His will in thought, word, and deed. (Rom. 12:3) In other words, when we are made right with God, we begin to think right, we begin to talk right, and we begin to act right. It is a process in which we are continually making progress. The Holy Spirit works in us from the inside-out, helping us become the fullness of what our Father wants us to be in Christ (John 1:12; Rom. 5:5; 6:14). The outworking of righteousness - which is ultimately seen in right thoughts, words, and actions - cannot begin until we accept our right standing with God through Jesus the Christ.
Romans 1:5 states, “Through Him [Jesus] and for His name's sake, we received grace and apostleship to call people from among all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith.” Obedience to God, His Word; His instructions is still the same requirement (Jeremiah ; Matthew 28:20; John ; Romans 8:13-14; James 1:22; 1 John 5:2-3). But the means of achieving it are different. What's changed is the means by which we can obey His instruction: grace received through being made righteous by faith (trusting) enables us to keep those laws which are appropriate for us.
But we are not made righteous by keeping them. We have to be made righteous through faith first in order to be able to keep them. Keeping them does not make us righteous. The Holy Spirit works in us from the inside-out, helping us become the fullness of what our Father wants us to be in Christ. (Between legalism and lawlessness lies the narrow pathway of righteousness that comes only by the Holy Spirit.)
The righteous requirement of the law (God's instruction) is love; love for God, yourself, and others (Rom. 8:3-4; 13:8-10; Mt. 22:35-40; 1 Tim. 1:5-7; Gal. 5:6, 13-14; Rom. 5:5; John 14:15, 23-24: 1 John 4:18; Rom. 13:10; Phil. 1:9-11; Rom. 4:4-5; Lk. 22:31-32). The Holy Spirit works in us from the inside-out, helping us become the fullness of what our Father wants us to be in Christ: Love. ...Love for God, yourself, and others! (For an in-depth teaching on this under-taught yet crucial and central subject, be strongly encouraged to listen to “The Righteous Requirement of the Law” audio by Derek Prince.)
Obeying God Under Grace
What is the difference between obeying God under the law and obeying God under grace? Again, the ultimate purpose of both is obedience to God, but this obedience is accomplished in different ways. To help settle this point, let’s look at a simple commandment given in both the Old Testament, under the law of Moses, and the New Testament, in one of the epistles. The exact words are used, and they apply whether we are under the law or under grace.
In the Old Testament, God was speaking through Moses to Israel, and He said, “For I am the LORD who brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy” (Leviticus 11:45). In context, “being holy” means that you have to keep a set of extremely complicated rules, which are delineated in great detail throughout the remainder of the book of Leviticus. In this case, holiness is attained by the methods of legalism:
“Do this. Don’t do that.”
The New Testament passage is addressed to Christians who have accepted Jesus’ redemption on their behalf: “As obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, ‘Be holy, for I am holy’” (1 Peter 1:14–16). The quotation is taken from Leviticus, so does that mean the Holy Spirit through Peter was telling us that we must observe all the Old Testament rules about animal sacrifices and mildews and bodily fluids? Obviously not. So, he must expect something different. The holiness of the law says, “I have to keep all these rules.” The alternative response of faith is, “I don’t follow a set of rules. I let Jesus be holy, in me and through me.” (See also Philippians 4:13)
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me from within.” (Philippians 4:13)
“Blessed are they who do his commands [instructions], that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:14; Jer. 7:23; Joshua 22:2-5; Mt. 28:20; Jn. 8:51; 14:21; 1 Cor. 7:19; 2 Cor. 5:10).
God’s Commands Come with His Intention; Promise!
This may be the most important feature to remember when considering God’s instruction (commands): Because of His constant benevolent love, mercy, goodness, and loving kindness, toward you, God is also empowering you with the capacity to carry out His commands. God completely, constantly loves you right now, and who you are becoming. His commands come with His intention. God’s commands come with His promise—His grace (His power becomes your power) for you to yield and to accomplish. Consider God’s commands not as cold demands but tender whispers. Be strongly encouraged to consider God’s commands as tender, loving whispers!
You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you from within. (Philippians 4:13)
