10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
If we keep the commandments of God, we will be separate from the world. Christians will look and act different, and they will be treated different. You don’t do the things that others do and claim to be okay. You will lose friends because you refuse to live in sin. However, it is not a bad thing to follow his commandments. You don’t have to worry about where your soul will spend eternity, nor will you have to worry about the cares of this world. Yea, you will be hit with trials, but that only makes you stronger. As for the friends that leave you, well they were never truly your friends. When you follow his commandments, you find that you have a greater connection with our savior. There is nothing hindering you in your prayers. It becomes a joy to live life as the bible directs you to do. So, don’t be one of those Christians with a sad look on your face. Be happy and full of joy, because our savior sets at the right hand of the father.
