Obedience

DSC00341

We are prone to make much of abiding, not much of obeying. We bask in the blessedness of being His friends, dwelling in Him, being hid with Christ in God. But Jesus always joins this holy estate with practical obedience. We hang up promises as mottoes but we are not so fond of commandments. Contemplation and adoration and mysticism have their place, but the friend of Jesus is the man who does what Christ commands him. — Vance Havner

If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. (John 15:10, NIV)

The path to sanctification is obedience. The obedient are holy and holy people are obedient. — Walter Henrichsen

If you love me, obey me; and I will ask the Father and he will give you another Comforter, and he will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit who leads into all truth. (John 14:15-16, TLB)

No man is really saved unless he is in his heart obedient to Christ.

                                            — C.H. Spurgeon
