Obedience Is the Key to Good Outcomes

May 11, 2017

Obedience, by definition, is compliance with an order, request, or law. It can also mean submission to another’s authority.

As Christians, we have followed Jesus Christ for Him to be the ruler of our lives. We have accepted Him as our savior and let Him take control over us. We should be obedient followers, however, it is not an easy task.

John 14:23 says,  Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

As you can see, Jesus expects us to obey His teachings, to follow all of His commands and to fully obey the Lord. It is not easy, but on the other hand, it will bring us good outcomes:

  1. God, our Father, will be with us. As Romans 8:31 says, What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? God is a strong refuge. If He is with us, nobody can win against us.
  2. Every good thing will follow. God will make our lives successful and fruitful. As a result, our lives will become better than yesterday.

The key to all of that is OBEDIENCE. We should obey His rules and listen to Him through the use of the Holy Spirit. By communicating with Him through prayers and reading His word, we can finally know what we need to do and what we need to understand.

Walking with Him obediently means we should not tolerate our sins. We should let God do His will and use us as instruments for His glory. In this, we’re not planning for ourselves, but for the Lord our God.

Keep this in mind and walk obediently with God!
