We all want peace in our lives. We all strive for it in different ways.
How Paul was looking for his peace?
Jesus had all the power. He walked on the water, he healed people, he raised the dead. Yet he obeyed God like every other human was supposed to.
Jesus was not exempt from obeying His Father. Jesus lived the life of obedience and died on the cross.
Obedience did not come easy to Jesus
Jesus had to learn obedience. He had to learn from suffering. What comes to my mind when I’m going through the difficult time?
Do I view suffering as a teacher who will help me become perfect?
Obedience is not a natural response. Jesus commanded his disciples to go and teach obedience to other people.
if obedience is not natural to us, than disobedience is the opposite.
You have not really learned the commandment unless you obeyed.
Jesus expects obedience of each follower.
Love for Jesus should go beyond words and feelings. Our love and Obedience should not defend on what other people are doing.
Jesus blesses obedience
Obedience unlocks the
door to spiritual truths.
Obedience is better than sacrifice.
