SERIES: EVERY COMMANDMENT OF SCRIPTURES IS FOR OUR PROFITING 2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17; 1 JOHN 5:3
God’s word lifts burden off us.
Obedience is the practice of following instructions, compliance with instruction, submission to someone’s authority, submission to God’s word, practicing God’s word. No matter how prayerful you are and how you feel about your faith, your faith is fake without obedience. Obedience has nothing to do with your opinion or feelings. If you don’t obey it you are simply a disobedient person. Obedience is of the heart. God does not look at the appearance of a person; He looks at the state of the heart. Romans 6:17. Obedience is the whole duty of man. Ecclesiastes 12:13. Thank God for the revelations you have received, but until you obey and put it to work, it is of no effect. Deuteronomy 29:29. Every time you catch a revelation dive into it. Job 36:11.It is not enough to serve; your obedience supersedes everything you do in the kingdom. Obedience is better than sacrifice. 1 Samuel 15:22. It is impossible for you to obey instruction without the spirit of obedience. Zachariah 4:6; Ezekiel 36:17. There is a spirit of disobedience controlling the lives of some believers. Ephesians 2:2. People find it difficult to obey because man by nature is proud, arrogant and rebellious. This we saw in the fall of the first man. It is difficult for man to obey because the instructions of God are naturally senseless. For example, it looks ridiculous that Abraham at an old age was asked to leave his father’s house. Man disobeys because Satan knows that disobedience displeases God. The moment you obey your lifting is settled Deuteronomy 28:1. However, it is not every obedience that is acceptable. For instance, delayed obedience is equal to disobedience. Abraham was a man who promptly obeyed God. Genesis 12:4; 17:11. God accepts delightsome obedience; God rewards you when you do it willingly. Isaiah 1:19. Obedience is the only way to prove the validity of any biblical truth, 1 Thessalonians 5:21; Malachi 3:10-11.Every time you comply with God’s instruction, he is committed to confirm his word. John 2:5; Luke 5:4-5. Mark 15:16 & 20. Passing the test of obedience is what qualifies believers to qualify for change of levels. Deuteronomy 28: 1; Genesis 22:16-18. When we obey Mathew 6:33, we are brought into the realm of supernatural favour. Also, when we obey the commandment of God on tithing, we are launched into a realm of financial favour. Proverbs 10:22. Obedience may be costly but the end result is priceless. Jesus was obedient to death and he was exalted, given a name that is above every other name, at the mention of that name, every need must bow and every tongue must confess. Philippians 2:6-11
