God Wants Us to Obey Him

crucifixPsalm 105:5; 45:

“Remember his marvelous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;… That [you] might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the Lord.”

Psalm 105 talks about the way God has blessed and led His people, with the conclusion that they should obey Him as a result. Obedience is key in our relationship with Jesus. Jesus died for our sins, not that we should keep sinning, but so that we would forsake our sins.

If we keep sinning, we put Jesus to an open shame and lose out on God’s blessings of obedience. This will even cost us our salvation. Now, don’t get me wrong. We are not saved by obedience; but someone who is truly saved will obey God out of love. If they are being disobedient to God, it goes to shows that they don’t really love Him. Jesus said, “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Disobedience is also a rejection of Jesus. And no one who rejects Jesus will be saved.

Salvation & Sanctification

crucifix

Psalm 56:13:

For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

The statement that King David made above is also applicable to the Christian experience. God has delivered us from death—the penalty of sin. Jesus died for our sins on the cross so we don’t have to. Along with saving us, God also enables us to walk, that is to live, according to His Word.

Second Peter 1:3-4 puts it this way:

…his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

In other words, we are not only saved from the penalty of sin, we are also saved from the power of sin. We don’t have to sin. Moreover we shouldn’t be sinning. That is what God wants to teach us. Not only so we can be a glory to His name and blessing to others in this life, but so we can prepare for the eternal life of righteousness to come.

May God be with you in your daily walk with Him. God bless you.

Holiness Worship

PraiseGod

Ps. 29:1, 2 – “Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty, give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”

Worshipping the Lord in the beauty of holiness means to live a holy life. That is, a life that reflects the character of God. For God is holy. This will truly bring God glory because others will see how much Jesus has changed our lives and praise God for His doing so.
