|Matthew 12:50 |
50 For whoever does the will of my Father who is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother."5
5 Whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my mother and brother. And how is one to do the will of the Father?
Then there came a voice out of the cloud, saying,
"This is my beloved Son. Listen to [believe and obey] Him!” Luke 9:35
Whoever comes to me, and listens to my spoken words and does [practices, obeys] them, I will show you what he is like.
He is like a man who built a house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation securely built on a rock; and when the flood arose, the torrent beat violently upon that house, but could not shake it because it was founded upon a rock.
But the person who hears and does not put my words into practice is like a man who built a house upon the ground without a foundation; against which the torrent struck violently, and immediately it collapsed; and the ruin of that house was great. Luke 6:46-49
Listen to and obey my voice, and I will be your God and you will be My people;
and walk completely in the ways that I command you. Jer 7:23
If a man loves me, he will obey my spoken words;
and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him.
He who doesn't love me does not obey my spoken words;
and the spoken words that you hear are not mine, but are the Father's who sent me. John 14:23-24
