"There the LORD made a decree and a law for them, and there he tested them. 26
He said, 'If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what
is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his
decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians,
for I am the LORD, who heals you."
16 "There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to Him.
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a man who stirs up dissension among
God makes it quite clear in these two Scriptures what He expects of us. While watching the movie, "The Passion" again, I was reminded of how badly I want to be a follower, to not sin. For I do not want all that Jesus endured for our sins to be in vain.
It is comforting to know that if we listen to God, He will take care of us.
By keeping from the six things the Lord hates, the seven that He detests, we will be taken care of.
