{John 14:21; NLT}
Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”

“Obedience to God is not a minor matter. Obedience is our very life, with God! It should again be remembered that ‘partial obedience’ is really disobedience with God! This is true for every person. God plays no favorites and makes no exceptions!…Today, too many are convinced that all God is looking for in their belief of Him is a verbal statement of faith! This is not true and never has been true. God said to Abraham that He knew He believed Him, and feared Him, because he ‘obeyed My voice’ and did what God commanded, offered up his only son, the son he loved.”

Henry Blackaby, Created to be God’s Friend, p. 176

Questions to consider:

  • Why does our obedience show our love?
  • In the past why have you failed to fully obey God?
  • What does it take to fully obey God?
