The same way that the traffic laws must be obeyed in order to avoid tragic accidents, God gave commandments and statutes to humankind to be obedient to the word of God to avoid a tragic end.
“And this is his commandment, That [WE SHOULD BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER], as he gave us commandment” (1 John 3:23).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).
“He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18).
“[AND HE THAT KEEPETH HIS COMMANDMENTS DWELLETH IN HIM, AND HE IN HIM]. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us” (1 John 3:23-24).
“[AND HEREBY WE DO KNOW THAT WE KNOW HIM, IF WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS]. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him” (1 John 2:3-5).
“[BELOVED, IF GOD SO LOVED US, WE OUGHT ALSO TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER. NO MAN HATH SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME]. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit” (1 John 4:11-13).
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 3:22).
“[BLESSED ARE THEY THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, THAT THEY MAY HAVE RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE, AND MAY ENTER IN THROUGH THE GATES INTO THE CITY]” (Revelation 22:14).
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:21).
