The word obedience according to the dictionary means compliance to a command, prohibition or known law and rule of duty prescribed; the performance of what is required or enjoined by authority or the abstaining from what is prohibited, in compliance with the command or prohibition.

Taking a closer look at the life of Father Abraham, you will discover that it was obedience that made him great.

Genesis 12:1,4 (KJV) Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

I will be sharing with us few reasons we should take obedience seriously.

1. Obedience proofs your love for God and to God. If you truly love God, you will obey Him.

2.Obedience is part of our worship. If we profess to love and serve God, then one of the ways we show it is our obedience.

3.Obedience is a test of our faith in God. This is true because faith in God means believing in his instructions and if we claim to have faith them we must obey.

4.Obedience is also a test of character, the ability to follow simple instruction is evidence of good character

5.Obedience helps us as God’s children to shine forth our light in this world

Obeying God is a vital part of  our lives as believers, nothing can be compared to a life of obedience. I pray that you receive grace to be obedient all the time in Jesus name. Amen.

Father in the name of Jesus, I receive grace to be obedient at all times in Jesus name    

Obey every instruction given to you today

I am an obedient child
