Why Obedience?

February 22, 2011 1 comment

In Deuteronomy 5:33, Moses writes, “Walk in obedience to all that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.”

How does this apply to today’s world?   It seems that striving for personal holiness can become selfish and hollow, but striving for social justice can generate sinful feelings of superiority.

Perhaps if our first impuse is obedience to Jesus and the Spirit, not a desire to please other people or ourselves, then we’re on the path toward godly, biblical obedience.
