Follow His Ways…[Abstain]

Moses with the tablets of the Ten Commandments...

There have been countless times when I have heard it said and read it from the Bible, we are to follow God’s ways and His statutes. In my own thoughts I would think of God’s ways as being the way in which God would live our life and want us to live our lives. In fact, Jesus was an example of all to follow in how He lived His life.
Now, what are God’s ways exactly? How do we live our lives in His ways? For answers to these questions, I went to the commandments God has given us throughout His word. The Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible has the  commandments laid out in categories. I would like to share with you today one of those categories of commands.
Abstain:
We are to abstain from…
…Idols {Acts 15:20}
…Fornication {Acts 15:20,29; 1 Thessalonians 4:2-3}
…Strangled meats {Acts 15:20}
…Eating blood {Acts 15:20}
…Meats offered to idols {Acts 15:29}
…All appearance of evil {1 Thessalonians 5:22}
…Fleshly lusts {1 Peter 2:11}
