Obey God

teaching-in-the-templeThe men marveled, saying: What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey Him? Matthew 8:27

If the winds can obey Him why do you find it so difficult to do so? Have you not understood who God is yet? You need more proof than what He gave through His Son? Look around you! Who created everything that looks so beautiful and in perfect formation as they go about doing exact what they were created to do? Well, God will not do anything else to convince you. He has created you, given you everything you need, gave you freedom when you were doomed to died, sent His only Son to die instead of you, His Spirit pleads with you to come to God, but yet you need more proof?

After you have experienced all this freedom, happiness and tasted how good they are, if you turn away from it, there is no more He will do for you (Romans 2:8). You would have gone too far. Now while there is still time, choose to obey God and live. The evil spirits obeyed Him (Mark 1:27). If you don’t obey this is what will happen:  Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life but the wrath of God remains on him. John 3:36. Are you willing to take that chance? I’m not! Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness (Romans 6:16)? Obey God and live.You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?
