HIS COMMANDMENTS ARE NOT GRIEVOUS

Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.’ – John 6 vs 29

Hello Beloved in the LORD Jesus, this is just another word from the Heart of the LORD, for the same purpose of installing peace in the hearts of HIS children, and expelling fear from their hearts concerning HIM. Read and be lifted!

Beloved, before we look into our opening scripture, I’d like to point something useful and vital to this teaching to you. In the dispensation of the Old Testament, Jesus described the commandments (The Law) as grievous and burdensome to bear;


For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.’ – Matthew 23 vs 4 {KJV}

The LORD Jesus was addressing the Pharisees in this place, and HE says they bind heavy burdens on the people; He was speaking of the Law. He describes the Law as a heavy burden and grievous to be borne. This was the Old Testament, and just it. The Laws are so heavy and burdensome in that one can hardly fulfil them perfectly. Now note, for the Lord to so address the Laws as such, that puts to heart that He wasn’t willing to pass them to His generation, meaning He got a better plan. - Selah

Now considering our opening scripture, let’s read the verse 28 first so we know what led to that verse 29;

‘Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.’ – John 6 vs 28 – 29 {KING JAMES VERSION}

They came to Jesus and asked of Him what more commandments they must keep to be accepted of the Father, because they had Moses to them as their Prophet, and behold here comes another Prophet, Jesus. So they taught to themselves, He must have got some other Laws from God to us just as Moses, and in verse 29 which is our opening scripture, we see that Jesus didn’t say I got no commandment for you, no! He gave them His commandment as they asked of Him. But what was it? Was it like those grievous commandments that came through Moses? Let’s see it from that verse 29;

‘Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.’ – John 6 vs 29 {KJV}

Waow! What a commandment! THAT YOU BELIEVE. He didn’t give them any further works to do, He didn’t give us any burden to bear, all He asks from us is to BELIEVE! – Selah. Believe in His works, Believing that He came to justify you forever {Hebrews 10 vs 14}, no matter how hard it seems because of its simplicity, He says to you, BELIEVE! – Selah

‘And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.’ – 1 John 3 vs 23 {KJV}

The Apostle John by the Holy Ghost speaks on this and confirms the precious words of the LORD Jesus. The LORD’S commandments to us His children are not grievous, it’s simply to believe on His finished works for you, and to love others because He has greatly loved you in that He chose never to count any of your sins on you because He lives forever to make intercession for them {Hebrews 7 vs 25}. – Selah. Beloved, the LORD wants you to know that every day He intercedes for your daily sins {Hebrews 7 vs 25, 1 John 2 vs 1 - 2}, therefore, cease been afraid of Hell or condemnation in His sight, He has chose to love you, it’s just Grace, and cannot be explained. What love that one can’t explain why! – Selah

Before I wrap it up, I want to quickly point you to something; the verse 22 of the scripture above says that we receive whatsoever we ask of Him because we keep His commandments. Many may think that when you try to please God with works of Righteousness, and maintain Righteous standards (Which is normal for anyone who has understood God’s love for him), then God honors their requests. But I like to tell you that is not correct, because the verse 23 immediately tells us what those commandments are, and they are simply TO BELIEVE and TO SHOW LOVE. Just Believe!

So from these, we see that the Life of a Christian is simply a life of GRACE. As you will not receive anything from God because you are self-righteous or upright, no! But because you believe in the sacrifice/works of HIS Son, whose works I bring to you tirelessly in teaching on this Blog. – Selah

Therefore my Beloved Brethren, know ye this day that His commandments are not grievous, not as the former Laws whereby you needed to keep them to gain God’s approval, but in this new era, all you need to be approved of God is Believe! Believe in the Precious Sacrifice and Works of HIS Dear Son Jesus. Believe and Live!

God Bless You.
