The rest of the people

[28] And the rest of the people, the priests, the Levites, the porters, the singers, the Nethinims, and all they that had separated themselves from the people of the lands unto the law of God, their wives, their sons, and their daughters, every one having knowledge, and having understanding; [29] They clave to their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse, and into an oath, to walk in God's law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, and his judgments and his statutes; Nehemiah 10:28-29

The people who did not sign the covenant make an agreement to abide with the signers. Even though not everyone signed they showed their allegiance by making an oath. They would walk in God’s law and do all the commandments of God.

Today we have two commandments (the ten rolled up into two). In James 2:8 it is called the ‘Royal law’. Am I obeying these commandments to the fullest? Are you?

Ask the Lord to show you how to carry out the ‘royal law’. Start by prayer and searching His word.

[37] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [38] This is the first and great commandment. [39] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:37-40

Have a blessed day,
