7 Will any man of you who has a servant plowing or tending sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, Come at once and take your place at the table?
8 Will he not instead tell him, Get my supper ready and gird yourself and serve me while I eat and drink; then afterward you yourself shall eat and drink?
9 Is he grateful and does he praise the servant because he did what he was ordered to do?
10 Even so on your part, when you have done everything that was assigned and commanded you, say, We are unworthy servants [possessing no merit, for we have not gone beyond our obligation]; we have [merely] done what was our duty to do.
Luke 17:7-10 AMPC
Our Duty As Christians
Jesus is speaking to His disciples and telling them that they are obligated or it is their duty to obey ALL that He has commanded them. We know in the great commission that Jesus says in Matthew 28:20 that the disciples need to TEACH ALL that He commanded them to ALL NATIONS.
"20 Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you..." Matthew 28:20 AMPC
We are Christians which means a follower of Jesus and His teachings. We are also obligated to obey ALL that Jesus commanded the 12 Apostles. Some believers today will teach that we are not obligated to obey what Jesus says. This is heresy (error) because we see clearly that Jesus says that it is OUR DUTY.
We obey God 1st because we LOVE Him. The 1st and greatest commandment is to love God with ALL/100% of our heart, soul, and mind.
2nd we obey God because we are obligated to. It is our duty.
It is so important that we are learning the commands of Jesus. Jesus says something very important in Luke 6.
46 Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you? Luke 6:46 AMPC
The main reason why I focus on teaching the commands of Jesus is because that is what Jesus commanded us to TEACH. If He commanded for us to teach it then other Christians are commanded to learn it as well. How can we call Jesus our Ruler, Master, Owner and not teach, study, focus, and learn what He commands?
