Stick to the Best Way of Life!

I take the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you today that I have put life and death before you, the blessing and the curse; and you must choose life so that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving Jehovah your God, by listening to his voice, and by sticking to him, for he is your life and by him you will endure a long time in the land that Jehovah swore to give to your forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

=====================================================

Some 1,500 years before Jesus walked the earth, Moses exhorted the Israelites to choose the best way of life then possible. He said: “I do take the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you today, that I have put life and death before you, the blessing and the malediction; and you must choose life in order that you may keep alive, you and your offspring, by loving Jehovah your God, by listening to his voice and by sticking to him.” Israel proved unfaithful to God, but the three basic requirements for life cited by Moses have not changed. They were restated by Jesus and others.

First, ‘we must love Jehovah our God.’ We demonstrate that we love God by acting in accord with his righteous ways. Second, ‘we must listen to Jehovah’s voice’ by studying God’s Word and obeying his commandments. This calls for our regular presence at Christian meetings, where the Bible is discussed. Third, ‘we must stick to Jehovah.’ Regardless of what we must face, let us always exercise faith in God and follow his Son

What a blessing it is to live in harmony with Bible truth! In 1914, this significant statement was published in The Watch Tower: “Are we not a blessed, happy people? Is not our God faithful? If any one knows anything better, let him take it. If any of you ever find anything better, we hope you will tell us. We know of nothing better nor half as good as what we have found in the Word of God. . . . No tongue or pen can tell the peace, the joy and the blessing which a clear knowledge of the true God has brought into our heart and life. The Story of God’s Wisdom, Justice, Power and Love fully satisfies the cravings of both our head and our heart. We are seeking no further. There is nothing more to be desired than to get this wonderful Story more clearly before our mind.” Our gratitude for spiritual light and truth is unchanged. Indeed, we now have even greater reason to rejoice that we “walk in the light of Jehovah.”

If you want to “walk in the light of Jehovah” but are not yet a dedicated, baptized Christian, do not delay. Do whatever is needed to meet the Biblical requirements for baptism the unique way to demonstrate gratitude for what God and Christ have done for us. Give Jehovah your most valuable physical possession your life. Show that you intend to do God’s will by following his Son. Without question, that is the best way of life!
