God requires obedience from his people. He put people of Judah to task by asking them provocative questions. In a metaphorical statement, God challenged\u00a0Judah inhabitants to consider what the\u00a0consequences of their sinful actions are. God said,<\/p>\n



\"decision\"\u201cNow 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\u00a0it\u00a0to bring forth\u00a0good\u00a0grapes, But it brought forth wild grapes. \u201cAnd 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\u00a0it\u00a0to bring forth\u00a0good\u00a0grapes, did it bring forth wild grapes?”<\/em> (Isaiah 5:1-4<\/a>).<\/p>\n<\/blockquote>\n


Lesson On\u00a0The Consequences of Sin and Blessing of Obedience<\/em><\/h2>\n

\"innocent\"Which one of the following two conditions\u00a0should be considered appropriate\u00a0for us: To obey God and receive God’s\u00a0blessings, or to disobey God and receive his punishments?<\/p>\n


The most efficient decision anyone can make in life is to obey God and enjoy his\u00a0benefits.<\/p>\n

A person who chooses to walk in God’s way will prosper; the fellow will see the fruits of his\/her labor abide.<\/p>\n


\"balance\"Meanwhile, a person who walks contrarily to God’s laws exposes him or herself to negative consequences. Sufferings that are attached to an act of disobedience to God’s laws are not quantifiable.<\/p>\n


If a person does not walk with God, he\/she will automatically become subject to Satan’s influences. Since nothing good comes from the devil, the reward of an\u00a0association anyone\u00a0has with him would be disastrous. Hence,\u00a0people\u00a0who\u00a0value God’s relationship should make their best efforts to obey his\u00a0commandments.<\/p>\n


Prayer On the consequences of Sin and Blessing of Obedience\u00a0<\/em><\/h2>\n


\"prayer\"Dear God, I understand that Satan has nothing good to offer anyone; therefore, I choose to follow you. My heart desires would be to faithfully serve you and obey your instructions. I will not deviate from loving you!<\/p>\n

I will serve you with my whole heart, and I will give all it takes to make our relationship work.<\/p>\n

Please anoint me with the grace and fill me with your Holy Spirit to keep my promises, and remain faithful to you until the end. Please count me worthy of your blessings on earth and in heaven also. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.<\/p>\n
