The Blessings of Obedience: Receiving Favor from God
Obedience is not the most popular word in our vocabulary. We live in a society that is constantly battling the system, fighting for what we want. We're primarily concerned with how the rules inconvenience us, and we're looking to see what we can get away with. Obedience is much more than following rules; it's a state of the heart. By missing this truth, we miss the power of complete obedience.
"'I set before you...A blessing if ye obey...And a curse, if ye will not obey' (Deuteronomy 11:26-28). Yes, a 'blessing, if ye obey'! This is the keynote of the Christian life. Our Canaan, just like Paradise and heaven, is the place of blessing as well as the place of obedience. It would be wonderful if we could take it in! But beware of praying only for a blessing. Let us be concerned with obedience; God will take care of the blessing. Let your one thought as a Christian be how you can obey and please your God perfectly."
