16Whoever keeps commandments keeps their life, but whoever shows contempt for their ways will die.
19: 16 The commandments we are told to obey are those found in God’s Word, such as the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20) and other passages of instruction. To obey what God teaches in the Bible is life-giving. To disobey him destroys life. 19: 17 Here God identifies with those who are poor, as Jesus does in Matthew 25: 31-46. As our creator, God values all of us, whether we are poor or rich. When we help people who are poor, we honor both the Creator and his creation. God accepts our help as if we are offering it directly to him.
Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible
Keeping the ten commandments seems impossible to do, all the time. But we accept keeping JESUS 2 commandments seems more like a way to live because we think that IF WE MESS UP Jesus will forgive us no matter what. But actually JESUS commandments are truly more a coverage of our ways of life because,HE SPECIFICALLY states our commands to become more like him (which is perfection) as a CHRISTIAN and our ability to OVERCOME our sin nature through the help of the HOLY SPIRIT! And scripure plainly states that our ways of living in unrepentant, unforgiving ways and continuing in sin will NOT enter the kingdom of HEAVEN.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure that we are obeying GODS laws and JESUS commandments so that we can keep our life in ETERNITY with our GOD and JESUS CHRIST!!
