We must remember in time past when a certain young lawyer asked Jesus, “Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (Luke 18:18).
Jesus answered, “Why callest thou me good? None is good, save one, that is, God” (Luke 18:19).
Jesus then answered saying: “Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother” (Luke 18:20).
Jesus also told to the young man saying: “But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments” (Matthew 19:17).
Jesus also told his disciples saying:“If ye love me, keep my commandments. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him” (John 14:15, 21).
God has declared, saying: “Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live” (Proverbs 4:4).
