OBEY JESUS To some of the people Jesus was teaching in the flat lands, He said "YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE LAUGHING NOW ARE IN FOR TROUBLE. YOU ARE GOING TO CRY AND WEEP!" [Lk 6:25b CE]. Jesus knows that true joy and laughter comes "WHEN YOU OBEY MY COMMANDMENTS ... YOU WILL BE FILLED WITH MY JOY" [Jn 15:10-11 NL]. If we find our pleasure in things of this world yet we want to follow Jesus, we will have great sadness giving up things of worldly happiness. Our joy from obeying Jesus is greater than any joy from worldly pleasure. Do you obey Jesus? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
