“What does the Bible mean when it talks about obedience?”
If we’ve given God control of our lives through Jesus’ sacrifice for us, we have this tremendous ability to love and follow God that He promises to bubble up from the inside out through the power of the Holy Spirit. But obedience (putting into practice those things we say we believe) is the necessary link to see that power in action. Ultimately, we have to ask ourselves – does God just want me to know more stuff, or am I supposed to be following His directions as I make my real world choices?
Use these verses for your daily quiet times (as simple as 1 minute to ask God to help you see Him, 5 minutes to find the verse and answer the question, and 1 minute to talk with God about what’s on your mind), and then each day send your answers to your leaders!
