The whole duty of man.

Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole [duty] of man.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 (NIV)

Beloved, please imbibe the habit of searching the scriptures intensively,daily  because therein is a lot of wisdom that can make life most fulfilling! Here in the verse above is a profound statement, it says what the whole duty of man is. This appears to be a springboard of every other activity we as humans might engage in as regards the worship of our great King!

If we fear God and keep commandments, living in the light of Christ will be a culture, love will dominate our relationships and ungodliness will have no place. We will be extremely wise because the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom(reference:Proverbs 9:10). If we keep God’s commandment, we will not lose the eternal life that we have in Christ.

We should not fail in this duty, friends. We should be imitable examples that will encourage others to live in God too. To do this, God’s help is needed. Once we are born again, we possess the Holy Spirit and he gives us that power to do what God wants. So, we should always stay with God and allow the Holy Spirit to direct us in every affair.

May we not fail in our whole duty to God as humans in Jesus name.


(God bless
