“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14.
We are rapidly approaching the end of this earth’s history, and as we realize that Jesus is indeed coming soon we shall be aroused to labor as never before. We are bidden to sound an alarm to the people. And in our own lives, we are to show forth the power of truth and righteousness. The world is soon to meet the great Lawgiver over His broken law. Those only who turn from transgression to obedience can hope for pardon and peace.
We are to raise the banner on which is inscribed: “The commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” Obedience to God’s law is a great issue. Let it not be put out of sight. We must strive to arouse church members, and those who make no profession, to see and obey the claims of the law of heaven. We are to magnify this law and make it honorable. –Testimony Treasures, vol. 3, p. 435.
