Command + Promise = PRO-MAND
Here's an example: "Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you." (James 4:8a)
Do you see how the command and the promise go together as a set? For a believing child of God, the promise provides motivation to obey the command.
Here's another way to find a PRO-MAND: someone has said that under the New Covenant the 10 Commandments become 10 Promises. "You shall have no other gods before me . . ." What wonderful news this is when taken as a promise. It's a marvelous PRO-MAND!
