When I was little, my favorite and still favorite sport is basketball. I remember feverishly running up and down the court playing both offense and defense at any given time. The captain would call out the plays in anticipation of making a basket or alerting the team to take their position to keep the opposing team from scoring. In all of this, the referees kept a close watch on every detail of the plays. Their function is to ensure that all of the players are adhering to the established rules of the game. Anyone found not adhering to the rules, would be called out and in effect cause a penalty on the team and the player.
In the book of Romans 1:19-20, it reads .."since what may known about God is plain to them because God made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. God made his words plain or simple to us. Jesus Christ said, I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. (John 13:15). In John 14:15, Jesus Christ also said, If you love me, you will obey what I command. God made it simple. God showed us his example. God showed us how to truly love him.
Let's follow all of God's rules that lead to eternal salvation: Sabbath, Passover, Feasts of God and Elohim God (Heavenly Father and Mother!)
