Deuteronomy 8:2 (NIV)
2 Remember how the Lord your God led you all
the way in the desert these forty years, to
humble you and to test you in order to know
what was in your heart, whether or not you
would keep his commands.
3. Frantic Pace of Life
„If you don‟t confront
the frantic pace of
your life, it will hunt
you down, run you
over and then dance
on your grave.‟
OBEDIENCE LOOKS LIKE:
1. Obedience obeys whatever God tells you to
do. We don‟t seek to negotiate over the will of
God but ask for strength to obey the will of
God. “do whatever He tells you”
2. Obedient followers do not aim to accumulate
more and more knowledge but aim to do what
they already know to be true. “he who hears
my words and puts them into practice is like
the man who builds His house on the rock!”
3. Obedience needs boldness, courage and
risk! When this is done, I will go to the king,
even though it is against the law. And if I
perish, I perish."
4. Obedience to Jesus and His commands is a
lifestyle, a way of life “If you love me, you will
obey what I command
5. Obedience is responding to the presence of
God. Obedience is the single key that unlocks
miracles, supernatural activity and heaven
coming to earth. Acts is one long story of
6. Loving God makes it possible to obey Him,
obeying Him makes it possible for God to send
His Holy Spirit.
John 14:23 (NIV) 23 Jesus replied, "If anyone
loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father
will love him, and we will come to him and
make our home with him.
7. Obedience is the fruit of humility.
Disobedience is pride!
