What Is Obedience?

Obedience Is Following The Instructions You’re Given. 

  • By Sign or Signal.
  • A  Spoken Word.
  • Or Written.

Examples:

red traffic lightSIGNAL:  A red light at an intersection means–STOP. The obedient response is to put your foot on the brake pedal, pressing into it so that the vehicle is no longer moving. It doesn’t mean slow down or pause. Stop means–stop.

comeSPOKEN:  Come…Go… (One-word commands). In obedience, you act accordingly–come or go. You heard the command, what are you waiting for?

 surgeon-general-warning WRITTEN:

In obedience, you quit smoking.

Ps. Now: Let’s Practice Obedience.

  1. Obedience is truly better than sacrifice. There was a time when sacrifice and rituals where the main focus of worship. While sacrifice and rituals still have there place. The purpose of our service and worship requires obedience. True it was that Abraham did obey to the point of providing his son for sacrifice. But once we understand the purpose of Abraham and God’s convenant with him we can see the truth of obedience.
