Product Description

Love your enemies; don't store up treasures on earth; seek first the kingdom of God. We know these biblical imperatives by rote---but rarely by heart! Seeing the commands of Christ as both instructive and informative, Blackaby shows how obedient acts of love and service create a life of complete joy, true freedom, and sustaining spiritual abundance. 176 pages, softcover from B&H.

Publisher's Description

Jesus says in John 15:10-11, "If you keep My commands you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commands and remain in His love. I have spoken these things to you so that My joy may be in you and your joy may be complete."

The Commands of Christ is an unpacking of that key promise, a simply powerful presentation of the loving imperatives we sometimes know more by rote than by heart: Love your enemies; Don’t store up treasures on earth; Seek first the kingdom of God; Let your light shine before men, etc.

Tom Blackaby’s focused writing serves as a plumb line of sorts, guiding us toward a vibrant commitment to the Lordship of Christ that better shapes our lives, how we worship, and how we relate to others. You will begin to know more clearly and experience more fully the freedom that comes through obedient acts of love and service to God.

    This a wonderful book. It is a guide to help us in our Christian walk to hold ourselves accountable for our behaviour and our responsibility not just to say we love The Lord but to really love him and demonstrate it by our obedience to his word. This book can serve as a mirror allowing you to look at yourself honestly and it can be frightening because we see things we don't always like to admit or deal with. I am so happy I've read this book and I know that I still have so much to work on in my Christian walk and I am grateful for this point of reference to look into my heart. If you are seeking some light into what God expects of you, then read it with an open heart even if some parts maybe hard to swallow. I highly recommend this book to all born again believers.

    This is an informative book on the different commands found in the Bible. These commands are for areas in our lives that the Lord wants us to grow spiritually. I really liked how the author explained these commands as directives from the Lord to help guide, direct or train us. They are not meant to punish us. The Lord knows we are imperfect and only gives these commands to help guide us to the life He wants us to have in Him.

    There are many verses throughout this book. I like that he included most of those in the text so you did not have to look them up. It made reading the book an easy experience. The best part of the book was after the author explained the particular command he was clarifying. He included a section called Application. This section is where the author said here is what the verses said and here is how to apply this particular verse to your every day life.

    I liked how simple and easy to understand this book was. I think this would be a perfect book for a new Christian to read, especially if that person is struggling with trying to do everything just right. I found the authors words to be encouraging and very informative. I gave this book 5/5 stars because it is a great book for every Christian to read.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
