Jesus says in John 15:10-11, “If you keep My commands you will
remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commands and
remain in His love. I have spoken these things to you so that My
joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.”
The Commands of Christ is an unpacking of that key promise,
a simply powerful presentation of the loving imperatives we
sometimes know more by rote than by heart: Love your enemies;
Don’t store up treasures on earth; Seek first the kingdom of God;
Let your light shine before men, etc.
Tom Blackaby’s focused writing serves as a plumb line of sorts,
guiding us toward a vibrant commitment to the Lordship of Christ
that better shapes our lives, how we worship, and how we relate to
others. You will begin to know more clearly and experience more
fully the freedom that comes through obedient acts of love and
service to God.
