In God's Glory


Posted on: 5 September, 2008

To obey, in New Testament usage, means to give earnest attention to the Word of God, to submit to its authority and to carry out its instructions

Obedience in this sense is almost dead in modern Christianity. It may be taught now and then in a languid sort of way, but it is not stressed sufficiently to give it power over the lives of the hearers.

The Bibles knows nothing of salvation apart from obedience. Paul testified that he was sent to preach “obedience to the faith among all nations”. In New Testament there is no contrdiction between faith and obedience.. The Bible recognizes no faith that does not lead to obedience, nor does it recognize any obedience does not spring from faith.. The two are opposite sides of the same coin. Were we to split a coin edgewise we would destroy both sides and render the whole thing valueless.. FAITH AND OBEDIENCE ARE FOREVER JOINED!

The message of the Cross contains 2 elements: (1) Promises and declarations to believed, and (2) commandments to be obeyed…

Read Matthew 7:24, John 14:21-23, Romans 6:17 & 18, James 2:20-22
