"Observe All Things Whatsoever
“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.
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
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.
