OBEDIENCE

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT?

centrality of obedience
CENTRALITY OF OBEDIENCE

ROMANS 1:5 PURPOSE OF GOSPEL PREACHING – OBEDIENCE OF FAITH

1 PETER 1:2 CHOSEN ACCORDING TO THE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD THE FATHER, BY MEANS OF SANCTIFICATION BY THE SPIRIT, INTO OBEDIENCE AND INTO SPRINKLING OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST

HEBREWS 5:9 CHRIST SAVES THOSE WHO ARE OBEYING HIM

what is obedience
WHAT IS OBEDIENCE?

OBEY = TO HEAR UNDER

IT IS A LEARNED SKILL HEBREWS 5:7-8

HUMILITY IS THE DOORWAY TO OBEDIENCE PHILIPPIANS 2:8

WITHOUT HUMILITY WE CANNOT ENTER THE KINGDOM MATTHEW 18:1-4

humility
HUMILITY

PHILIPPIANS 2:6-8 JESUS CHOSE TO BE UNDER [A SLAVE] TO BELONG TO ANOTHER

HUMILITY SAYS:

  • I AM NEEDED, I AM NOT HERE TO PLEASE MYSELF, BUT GOD
  • I AM NEEDY, I CANNOT GO IT ALONE, I NEED TO BE UNDER, I NEED TO BE LED, I NEED TO FOLLOW THE LORD JESUS
obedience follows humility
OBEDIENCE FOLLOWS HUMILITY

OBEDIENCE IS NOT NORMAL

IT IS LEARNED THROUGH PRESSURE, STRESS

THE TEMPTATION IS TO PANIC AND RUN, OR TAKE OVER AND TRY TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM

HUMILITY WAITS FOR GOD

HUMILITY HAS NO PRIVATE PROBLEMS

HUMILITY NEEDS SELF-CONTROL

humility looks up
HUMILITY LOOKS UP

IT ASKS:

  • CAN GOD BE TRUSTED IN THIS SITUATION?
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?

IT WAITS FOR DIRECTION

IT GIVES US THE FREEDOM TO SAY NO TO SELF AND YES TO GOD

under leads to hearing
UNDER LEADS TO HEARING

WHEN I COME UNDER THE LORD JESUS I AM ENABLED TO OBEY HIS COMMANDS

LUKE 6:6-10

I AM FREE TO CHOOSE TO DO WHAT HE SAYS

I CANNOT DO IT ON MY OWN

BUT I CAN CHOOSE TO DO

the importance of listening
THE IMPORTANCE OF LISTENING

LIFE OF OBEDIENCE – WALKING IN THE SPIRIT

LIKE DRIVING A CAR:

  • LISTEN TO A NAVIGATOR
  • LISTEN TO A GPS
obedience is not
OBEDIENCE IS NOT …..

COMPLIANCE [DOING BECAUSE I HAVE TO]

IT IS FREELY CHOOSING TO DO WHAT IS REQUIRED OF ME

NOT A QUESTION OF WILL I OR WILL I NOT DO IT [NOT THAT FORM OF CHOICE]

IT IS HOW I DO WHAT I HAVE TO DO

INWARD CHOICE, NOT OUTWARD COMFORMITY AND INWARD REBELLION

john and obedience
JOHN AND OBEDIENCE

JOHN USES THE PHRASE “KEEP [MY] WORD”

JOHN 14:15, 21, 23, 15:9-10

KEEP = GUARD, PROTECT, HOLD [VALUE]

WE GUARD, VALUE THE LORD’S WORD BY DOING IT

ONLY THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD WILL KEEP HIS WORD

ONLY THOSE WHO KEEP HIS WORD WILL REMAIN IN HIS LOVE
