Are you ever overwhelmed with the commands of God? There are quite a few, and when taken out of context they can be incredibly overwhelming. Sometimes it helps to remember that God only commands us to do things He has already done Himself. For example, when the Lord reminds us to not be ashamed of the Gospel, remember that God is not ashamed of you. He does not look on you with disgust or condemnation when you sin. He convicts with love, and draws you even closer to His heart through grace and the power to be holy as He is holy. Praise God for His commandments!
