Maybe the above statement sounds very obvious, but let's look again at what it says as it is broken down into four parts.
Third is obedience. Yaakov (James) said that faith without works is dead. But how do we define works, obedience to what? Is it obedience to my church doctrine, or to a list of rules that someone has made up. Is it obedience to what "I" think is the right thing to do? There must be a standard and that standard is the Torah. The Torah is the first five books of the Bible. The words that Elohim gave to Moses on Mt. Sinai. These words have never changed nor have they been done away with (Matt 5:17). These words and our obedience to them are what should separate us from the world. When these instructions are lived out we can truly become the light of the world.
Last, but not least is that we are serving the ONE TRUE ELOHIM. There may be many gods in this world today, but only one is the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the One who introduced Himself to Moses as I AM. He revealed Himself to the Hebrew people thru the scriptures and later thru the life of Yeshua, Messiah ben Joseph. It is this Elohim that we serve and are accountable to.
