 BE OBEDIENT TO GOD

DEVOTIONAL 4

BE OBEDIENT TO GOD

Many of my people obey me only when it suits them to do so.  They see when they want to see, and hear when they want to hear, whereas at other times they continue following their own ways and disobeying my commandments, and not doing my Will.

I don’t want people who are hot sometimes, lukewarm other times and plain cold the rest of the time.  I don’t want just lip service; but total obedience as seen in: 1 Peter 2:15(KJV):  15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:

What I want is total commitment to following me; and obeying my commandments and my people doing what I want them to do in their lives.  It means giving themselves totally to me, their Lord and Saviour in total adoration and praise.  I want them to love me, with all their hearts, souls, minds and strength and to worship me, and I want them to love their neighbours as I have loved them and to read the word in the Bible for them to obey the Word – which means not just hearing it but putting it into practice. It means doing what is right at all times and always wanting to do good.  If they do something wrong and disobey me I want them to repent and ask for forgiveness and I will forgive them because I am merciful and loving 

People who truly love me obey my commandments and do what I tell them to do as seen in:  John 14:21 (KJV) 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Those who love me renounce themselves and their foolish ways; take up their crosses and follow me as seen in the following scripture:  Matthew 10:39 (KJV) 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

I love my people and I want all of them to be with me forever in Heaven.
