Keeping GOD’s Commandments
Seek the Truth with all your heart.
A Holy Spirit filled ‘spiritually born again’ person relates to the Ten Commandments as having expanded meaning and value. So such a person not only keeps the commandments, but they do not even think wrong things, or ponder sin in any way. If they begin to do so, they do not dwell on them but immediately arrest their thoughts and divert attention to good things. They seek to live a far better life than even the commandments require.
When you turn away from what is bad, don’t remain in neutral, turn to what is good. It is a process of replacement therapy – out with the bad and in with the good.
When you want to fully relax, never have an empty mind, always allow the Holy Spirit to keep your heart and mind conscious of your GOD-ly relationship.

John 14:15-16, 18, 20-21, 23-24. “If you love Me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the FATHER, and HE will give you another Counsellor to be with you forever --- the Spirit of Truth. I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you. On that day you will realize that I am in My FATHER, and you are in Me, and I am in you. Whoever has My commands and obeys them, they are the ones who love Me. Whoever loves Me will be loved by My FATHER, and I too will love them and show Myself to them. Anyone who loves Me will obey My teaching. My FATHER will love them, and We will come to them and make Our home with them. Whoever does not love Me will not obey My teaching. These words you hear are not My own, they belong to the FATHER who sent Me.”
