1 Jhon 5:2-4

5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep His commandments.
5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.
5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Sometimes people like to receive the task which is not hard or heavy. By performing tasks that are not heavy then we do not need to spend a lot of energy or mind. Maybe with one-way then the task will be resolved. If there is a task meant there is a person who is giving the task. Assignor or, we know as a our boss have the authority to regulate us through the task which he gave. We have a duty as executor obligation to complete the task. In outline there are two reasons to make the task
be easy:

1. Because the task is in line or below the our ability

2. Because the authority and facilities who was given by our boss

If the task given by our superiors that appropriate or below our ability it is certain that the task It will be resolved properly. We easily
controlling factors in the failure task. But this will not bring
changes or grow in our work. Because there is no added value that can make us grow

An easy task because of the authority and facilities from our boss made us more careful in the complete the task. Although the task was hard but if accompanied with complete facilities and a letter the authority of the employer's then the task will be easier. For example, if a subordinate is asked to
take a luxury car in a car showroom. So with armed with a letter from the boss, we will easily taking the luxury cars. And if not armed letter from the employer's Then the task does not necessarily can be done. Someaone who having authority or facility is someone who the trust superiors. Of course is not easy to gain trust it. It takes time and devotion.

Likewise, us as followers of God. Brief the tasks given by the Lord was heavy. We
must live holy and has the most holy faith. But the words of God says that the task who given by God is not heavy. Why not heavy? The answer is because we've given the authority and facilities by God to do the task. We were Spirit facility. The Holy Spirit enables us to act in accordance with the will of God. Holy Spirit reminds us if we are out of the path of God. Spirit sacred works for us with His calm and soft voice . The authority is also given to us. Because we are the children of God. With this authority we can pray to the Father. We can cast out demons in the name of Jesus. We can even heal the sick. It's all because authority and facilities provided
God for us.

But there is one condition that we have to do that all this happens. That we must love Jesus with all our heart. We must be fully born of God and not from this world. We must willingly and firmly believe in the Lord Jesus. So we will win agains the world who was controlled by the evil that the devil . Gbu

Hello Anastasius. Good topic, and we must all remember that in keeping the Commandments of the Lord we do keep ALL of them, not picking and choosing. I just thought I'd add that to your excellent blog. Amen.
