OBEDIENCE LEADS TO BLESSING

OBEDIENCE LEADS TO BLESSING

God demands obedience from his children. We must satisfy God with holiness to receive his blessings.

Believers can learn from a bible scenario that God used to chastise his children for their disobedient acts.

God put people of Judah to task by asking them some provocative questions.

In a metaphorical statement, Jehovah challenged Judah inhabitants to consider what the consequences of their sinful actions would be should they persist in sin and shun repentance.

God said,

Now let me sing to my Well-beloved a song of my beloved regarding His vineyard: My Well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill.

He dug it up and cleared out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine.

He built a tower in its midst, and also made a winepress in it; so He expected it to bring forth good grapes, But it brought forth wild grapes.

“And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, Judge, please, between Me and My vineyard. What more could have been done to my vineyard that I have not done in it?

Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes, did it bring forth wild grapes?” (Isaiah 5:1-4).

 

Important Lessons on Obedience to God

Lesson 1

Obedience leads to blessings. A person who chooses to walk in God’s way and obey his laws will prosper. Such a person will see his/her fruits abide.

Lesson 2

Disobedience leads to suffering. A person who disobeys God’s law exposes himself (or herself) to negative consequences.

Sin exposes a person to the influences of Satan, which are detrimental to any soul!

Nothing good comes from the devil who is ever willing to assault God’s children.

Lesson 3

Anyone who makes a decisive effort to satisfy God with obedience will prosper.

Believers’ portions of obedience are not limited to heavenly blessings; they will also prosper on earth and glorify God.

Please Pray for Strength to Obey God

O dear good Lord please give me grace and strength to obey your laws so that I can qualify for your earthly and heavenly rewards.

I understand that Satan has nothing good to offer anyone who chooses to follow him; therefore, I choose not to follow him!

I choose to obey God!

I am determined to follow you (God) and obey your instructions so that I can prosper.

Please give me the grace to remain committed and obey your instructions from now on, and forevermore!

For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

Benediction and Mutual Love Among Brethren

Benediction and Mutual Love Among Brethren

 Paul shared benediction with the church at Corinth as he concluded his admonishing letter. Paul said,

 

“Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss (purely based on culture and nothing more!) All the saints greet you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:11-14).

 

On Benediction and Mutual Love Among Brethren

 

 

jesusThe christ-centered church must enjoy the communion of the Holy Spirit; the body of Christ ought to also enjoy mutual love among the members.

Since Christ is the head of the church, people who partake in the fellowship should enjoy benefits that include, but are not limited to, peace, protection, and prosperity of the Lord.

 

God will not fail his children who remain committed to his true worship through their devoted services. Also, any believer who promotes unity among the brethren will truly be rewarded in this life, and in heaven also.

 

Those who serve in true love as promoted by the Holy Spirit will be called the “just” in the presence of God. Such individuals will earn great rewards from God in heaven. (John 2:24)

 

Prayer On Benediction and Mutual Love Among Brethren

 

 

devoted prayerMay the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding be upon all the saints of God.

May the church prosper in all its deeds. May God help my fellow Christians to overcome their challenges.

 

May the Christian community live in peace and may we all have an abundance of the Holy Spirit to run successful ministries and enjoy all God’s benefits.

I have made all these declarations in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ – and all the churches and brethren throughout the world say “Amen!”
