“Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear Him, and keep His commandments, and obey His voice, and ye shall serve Him, and cleave unto Him.”  Deuteronomy 13:4 (KJB)

There are many today who will not hear of the “Fear of God”.  When you fear God there is nothing else to fear because He is the most awesome, holy, righteous, just Person existing. When we fear God He is our Protector, our Physician, our Comfort, our Peace, our Savior, etc..

To fear the LORD and walk after His is to follow His heart and mind.  Keeping His commandments is not possible without these two things – fearing Him and following Him.

Following Him seems to strongly imply or impress the idea that we trust Him and are doing so willingly and loving Him.

The Lord has told us in the New Testament that His commandments are not grievous [burdensome] (1 John 5:3).

Has anyone ever faithfully kept the commandments of God, feared the LORD, and followed Him?  Only One; and He is the holy Son of God.

This One, whose name is Jesus, condensed the Ten Commandments into two which strengthens the ten.  “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength; and the second is like unto it; you shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:30-31).

Jesus also said of Himself, “I do always those things which please Him [the Father] (John 8:29).  Let us follow Jesus who has died for our sins, was buried, and rose again.  He alone can redeem us, for He has purchased us with His own blood.
