In John 14:23, 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.”
Obedience…the second step to receiving hopein Christ. Last time we talked about the first step…humility.
True humility…leads to obedience.
Obedience…just as vital ashumility,brings to light in our walk the hope in Christ to do His will.
Obedience stems from the building block of humility. It sometimes causes us to sacrifice and endure suffering to persevere the obstacles of temptation, persecution or even doubt.
DADs, just like Jesus…we must strive every day to achieve hope through intentional obedience.
Hebrews 5:8-9 - “Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.”
Where in your life are you completely obedient?
What areas of obedience do you need to work on?
True humility is the first step to hope…
Where there is true humility…
then daily intentionalobediencefollows!
One demonstration of obedienceis prayer. Prayer will be our topic next as we continue addressing the four quarters towards achieving the hope needed to become the DAD God uses!
DADs…do not stand on the sidelines of life…get off the bench…“get in the game”…
Today is game day…and so is every day…God gives you!
So…C’mon men…Suit Up!
To follow the “Suit Up” Movement…
