And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,
If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.
I incline my heart to perform your statutes forever, to the end.
But this command I gave them: ‘Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.’
I hasten and do not delay to keep your commandments.
Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.
If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;
But if you carefully obey his voice and do all that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.
I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your rules before me.
