Obedience to God is very essential as He is the Master, Maker and Creator for which we must accord all and every reverence. How does one Obey God? Obedience to go is but one, do EXACTLY as He commands you to do. Adam and Eve gave mankind plenty to refer to when it comes to obedience and its consequences.
Deuteronomy 27:10 – You shall therefore OBEY the LORD your GOD, and do His commandments and His statutes…
Prior to every assignment God hands over to His people comes a clear direction, instructions and order of things to be followed. From the many accounts in the Bible and even in our own lives there have been instructions and directions which the Lord handed down.
Genesis 3:3 – “but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.“
The Holy Bible contains all and every instruction man must abide in, walk with and be led by. And in the first letter by Apostle Paul to the Corinthians, he recounted the place of God with the Bible as the guide, instructions and directions for man.
1 Corinthians 10:11-14 – “Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.“
Unto every act of disobedience to God by man has always been met with consequences, yet each day we forsake the voice and commandment of the Lord our God and do as we please.
Man doing what he or she pleases is by choosing his or her own ways, God demands total obedience, nothing partial but Total Obedience.
King Saul did go to Amalek and killed the people but left Agag their king alive, Saul did kill some of the animals but decides to bring the best to the land of God. Saul was rejected by God as King over Israel because he chose to Obey God partially.
Obedience to God is not choosing to that which pleases you it is choosing to do EXACTLY that which pleases God, No Additions no Subtraction.
The Apostle Paul tells us, “Let us work toward complete holiness.” – 2 Corinthians 7:1 Obedience is a lifelong commitment so we need to make it a daily goal.
