There are those who don’t want to follow Jesus because they think there are too many rules to follow.  Those people are right; there are too many MAN MADE rules.

Did you have rules as you were growing up from parents, teachers, etc?  Wasn’t it better to follow those rules than not?  I know some rules may seem unnecessary but I’m talking about the REAL ones like don’t steal, don’t lie, treat people well, etc.

Psalms 19:9-11 says, “God’s laws are pure, eternal, just.  They are more desirable than gold . . .  For they warn us away from harm and give success to those who obey them.”

So why should we follow God’s laws?  Because they keep us from getting hurt and help us be successful.

God wants us to live life abundantly!  Try it God’s way and see what happens.  Don’t give up.  I promise, you will never regret it.
