“The Conclusion of the Matter”

fear God

Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived concluded that fearing God and keeping his commandments is the duty of all mankind. After looking at life, all it phases, and ups and downs, he brings it back to most basic level that we all need to strive for. Serve and obey God.

To have the fullest life possible, to enjoy all that this life has to offer we must respect God, and obey him. If we do this life will be good for us. If we don’t, we separate ourselves from God and His blessings.

The message of the Bible from Genesis on; is that if we disobey our creator we separate ourselves from Him. That is what Adam and Eve did when they disobeyed His first command. When they disobeyed they lost the blessing of living in communion with God and the level of provision they had once enjoyed.

The conclusion remains the same today. We must fear God and keep His commandments. Today He speaks through Jesus. Are we listening, and obeying? Do we respect and keep His commandments?
