Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 6:5


6:5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart - And is this only an external commandment? Can any then say, that the Sinai - covenant was merely external? With all thy heart - With an entire love. He is One; therefore our hearts must be united in his love. And the whole stream of our affections must run toward Him. O that this love of God may be shed abroad in our hearts.

    DEUTERONOMY 6:25 AND IT SHALL BE OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IF WE OBSERVE TO DO ALL THESE COMMANDMENTS BEFORE THE LORD OUR GOD AS HE HATH COMMANDED US 1 CORINTHIANS 3:9 FOR IF THE MINISTRATION OF CONDEMNATION BE GLORY MUCH MORE DOTH THE MINISTRATION OF RIGHTEOUSNESS EXCEED IN GLORY PSALM 71:2 DELIVER ME IN THY RIGHTEOUSNESS AND CAUSE ME TO ESCAPE INCLINE THINE EAR UNTO ME AND SAVE ME

    Thank you Jesus as you have commanded us to teach our children with your word and obey them. Help me Lord and let your Holy Spirit lead me that my Son will accept your words and obey them. I will handover my Son into your hands Jesus. You have blessed us abundantly and explosively. Praise you Lord and will worship you alone. I love you Jesus and thanks to your blood Jesus Amen hallelujah

    I think following the commandment pretrial begins with our own mother and father,how we respected them or not as well as what we saw and took away from our lives as we grew up and how we applied them,honoring our parents was a commandment of our father,if you didnt listen to them well,chances r you probably will struggle with obedience,being submissive,good thing there is prayer and help from abov
