Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and ye shall find: knock, and the door shall be opened.
Believe in me, all ye that labour under oppression, and I will give you relief.
if ye comprehend these things, happy are ye if ye put them in practice.
if ye love me, keep my commandments.
your love to me will be in keeping my commandments: even as I love my father by keeping his commandments.
who will render to every man according to his actions: eternal life to those,
for in the christian-dispensation, neither circumcision avails any thing, nor uncircumcision, but an active benevolent faith.
be not deceived, God will not be mocked: for what a man soweth, that shall he also reap:
throw off then your vices as dregs and scum: and receive with docility that genuine doctrine, which is effectual to your salvation.
just so faith, if it be not operative, is intirely lifeless.
1 John 2:3
if we keep his commandments, that is a proof that we know him.
1 John 3:22
whatever we ask, we shall receive it of him, because we keep his commandments, and do what is agreeable to him.
1 John 5:3
for our love of God consists in the observation of his precepts: precepts that are far from being grievous.
blessed are they who wash their robes, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city."
Whoever is a skilful moralist, let him show by his virtuous conduct, that he practises the humble precepts of wisdom.
