"Obedience and the Word"


“Obedience and the Word”


But the Word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.        Deuteronomy 30:14


OBEDIENCE is the act of being SUBMISSIVE to someone or something.  Moses instructs the Nation of Israel, that if they OBEY the Voice of the Lord God, to keep His Commandments and His Statutes, which are written in the Book of the Law, and if they turn to the Lord God with ALL their HEART and with ALL their SOUL, the Lord God would BLESS the work of their hands.  He would bring them PROSPERITY. 


This COMMANDMENT, which he brought them was not too mysterious for them nor was it far off.  But the Word IS very NEAR, it was in their MOUTH, they KNEW it and SPOKE it.  It was also in their HEART, and therefore, they SHOULD DO whatever the Word commands.


The Apostle Paul tells us in Romans 10:9-10, that: “If you declare with your MOUTH, “Jesus is Lord,” and BELIEVE in your HEART that God raised Him from the dead, you will be SAVED.  For it is with your HEART that you BELIEVE and are JUSTIFIED, and it is with your MOUTH that you PROFESS your FAITH and are SAVED.”


In order to BELIEVE, you must FOLLOW or OBEY the WRITTEN WORD of GOD so that your FAITH will be in the Word, who was with God in the beginning, and the Word was God.  The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among mankind.  The Word of God is the Lord Jesus Christ.


For mankind to be able to have a relationship with God, and receive SALVATION, they MUST be OBEDIENT to the WORD of GOD.  They NEED a KNOWLEDGE of His Written Word, and a RELATIONSHIP with the Word that became flesh and dwelt among mankind.  This means you MUST READ and STUDY the Written Word, which is the Holy Bible, and SPEAK it to your friends and relatives, especially the children.   And have a RELATIONSHIP with the Word that became flesh by, ACCEPTING Him as your SAVIOR and LORD.


You start by:  BEING WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  You MUST BELIEVE with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be OBEDIENT to His WORD.  And be able to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and GAIN an ETERNITY in HEAVEN with ALL its BLESSINGS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
