Following Jesus: Commands of our Lord Jesus can all be summed up by loving God, and others as yourself. Jesus also says, “If you love me, keep my commands. ~ John 14:15”
So what are his commands? We’ll take this one verse at a time.
Matthew 4:17: New King James Version (NKJV)
17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
What is it to repent?
Answer: Many understand the term repentance (from the Greek word metanoia) to mean “turning from sin.” This is not the biblical definition of repentance. In the Bible, the word repent means “to change one’s mind.” The Bible also tells us that true repentance will result in a change of actions (Luke 3:8-14; Acts 3:19). Acts 26:20 declares, “I preached that they should repent and turn to God and prove their repentance by their deeds.” The full biblical definition of repentance is a change of mind that results in a change of action. ~ Read more gotquestions.org/repentance.html
