You must follow the LORD your God and fear Him. You must keep His commands and listen to His voice; you must worship Him and remain faithful to Him.
I’m not sure which bible translation I used for Deuteronomy 13: 4 shown above but it seems to emphasize the word must. Other translations are softer and phrase the idea differently.
God loves so very much that He created us free. There really is not any must for us since we were created with the ability to choose. If we love God then there really isn’t any other responsible choice for us.
We must follow God, we must fear Him, we must keep His commands, we must listen to Him, we must worship Him and we must remain faithful to God. If we don’t do these things then we must not really love Him.
Preparing for the soon return of Jesus Christ, praise our Lord,
