“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.
