"Observe All Things Whatsoever                                           I Have Commanded You."

Observe All Things
“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Matthew 28:20

   
These words make up the third part of the “Great Commission.” This commission is given to every believer. It is broken into three separate duties that become the Christians' orders. We are to first go to the nations and teach everyone of them about Jesus Christ and salvation. Secondly, we are to baptize all those who profess faith in Him. Thirdly, we are to teach each new baptized believer to observe all the things that the Lord Jesus commanded us to do.

If you have been saved and baptized, it is because somebody was observing what the Lord has commanded. Their obedience to His command led to your hearing the gospel. If you were led to follow the Lord in baptism by immersion, somebody was observing the Lord’s commands. If you have a biblical church to attend, where you hear Bible preaching, and where you are led to grow in the Lord daily, then somebody has been observing the Lord’s commands.

Observing means to obey or comply to, and to keep in one’s actions. Simply, we are to be taught to obey and comply to the commands that Jesus gave us, and to maintain those commandments in our daily actions. If we will be faithful to this part of the Great Commission not only will many be saved and baptized, but also many will continue to grow in Christ. This last part is vital to the propagation of the gospel. We are to be faithful to continually be in obedience to Christ. After salvation and baptism comes complying with the Lord’s commands, which leads to godliness, which leads to more people being saved and baptized.

This week, commit to getting in the Word of God with a yielded heart, and find those things that Jesus has commanded us to be observing. Then let us make those things our way of life, so that our Lord’s marching orders to His people will be carried out faithfully.
