John 14:15 (NKJV) If you love me, you will obey what I command.
Trust and obedience are your allies when you surrender your life to God. “For it’s God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.” That’s what the apostle Paul teaches in the book of Philippians Chapter 2:13 (NKJV). But if we don’t trust that God loves us, that the Lord is all-wise and all-powerful, and that the Lord cares for us; we won’t be very likely to obey Him, will we?
When it comes to our formal theology, we confess a belief which says that obedience is born out of trust. Yet in our day-to-day life, we’re too often disobedient in spite of giving great words of to trust. Do you trust the Lord enough to obey Him?
Point to ponder- So the question remains: can you truly trust your Lord without obeying Him?
