I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end. Psalm 119:112
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Romans 6:15
When I was a kid my parents defined obedience for me what seemed like 5 times a day, and here is how they defined it. “Obedience is doing what you’re told, when you’re told, with a right heart attitude.” God has given us specific instructions in black and white about what His will is for us. He wrote it in His Word. Of course, we don’t have to obey those who are not in authority over us. But no one can accurately say that God isn’t their authority. He is in charge. He is the ultimate and final authority, and as He has given us the Bible, it is our ultimate and final authority as well. What God says, we ought to do.
The question for us today is this- Are we being obedient to what God has told us to do!
