Abiding Precepts – Jacob 6

Read the full chapter here: Jacob 6

Passage #1

And how blessed are they who have labored diligently in his vineyard . . .

Jacob 6:3

Precept #1

Labor diligently in God’s kingdom.

Are you working hard in God’s kingdom . . . or hardly working? And where exactly is God’s kingdom? The church? Your neighbors house? Your own home?

Passage #2

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, I beseech of you in words of soberness that ye would repent, and come with full purpose of heart, and cleave unto God as he cleaveth unto you. And while his arm of mercy is extended towards you in the light of the day, harden not your hearts.

Jacob 6:5

Precept #2

Repent and follow Jesus with full purpose of heart.

Have you given your whole heart to believing in and following Jesus Christ? Or are you only half heartedly living your faith?

Passage #3

Behold, will ye reject these words? Will ye reject the words of the prophets; and will ye reject all the words which have been spoken concerning Christ, after so many have spoken concerning him; and deny the good word of Christ, and the power of God, and the gift of the Holy Ghost, and quench the Holy Spirit, and make a mock of the great plan of redemption, which hath been laid for you?

Jacob 6:8

Precept #3

Don’t reject God’s words – no matter where or from whom they come.

Are your heart, mind, and soul tuned to hearing God’s messages to you from every and any source? What do you do with those messages once you recognize them?

Passage #4

O be wise; what can I say more?

Jacob 6:12

Precept #4

Be wise. Enough said.

Did you know that wisdom is the correct application of knowledge? What knowledge are you correctly using in your daily life? How does it bring you closer to God?

Passage #5

For behold, after ye have been nourished by the good word of God all the day long, will ye bring forth evil fruit, that ye must be hewn down and cast into the fire?

Jacob 6:7

Precept #5

Don’t bring forth evil fruit.

How much has God nourished you? What fruit have you brought back to Him in return?
