Children are taught from a young age to obey their parents. Parents give instruction and the child should follow their direction. Parents know more and have life experiences. Their wisdom and understanding are instruments to help guide the child through life. The child grows up to make decisions hopefully from their parents guidance.
God gives His children, believers in Christ Jesus instructions to obey. His commands are to be carried out. Blessings of good decisions occur for believers that have followed God’s voice in obedience. The Holy Spirit brings remembrance of these directions and gives power to follow them. Obedience has good consequences and disobedience brings the opposite.
Challenge: Believer, rely on the Holy Spirit to bring you into obedience to God’s commands. You are blessed when you obey and are like Jesus! Amen!
