Learn the Vocabulary of the Good Life
Growing in faith and a Christian lifestyle is quite similar to learning a language. In this case, the commands of God provide the vocabulary, the Prophets and Apostles the grammar, and Jesus, being a fluent speaker, shows us how its done. Only when we listen to him will we truly know what is the source of the Good Life —the good, pleasing and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2).
The Good Life is not always easy but is always better. The friends of Jesus have been promised the Good Life is free, full, and forever. Therefore, we should learn and obey the commands of God for the Good Life starts with knowing the difference between good and evil. And we simply cannot figure out the difference by ourselves.
