Recurring themes--Loving Obedience

As I study the Word, I am blown away by people's devotion to God, and His faithfulness to them. Our last sermon was about saying, "Yes!" When Jesus asks us to do something, the proper response is, "Yes!"

God was/is faithful to
  • Noah
  • Abraham
  • Moses
  • Mary
  • the Disciples
  • Me (Faith)

Each of these servants of Christ was faithful, regardless of how absurd, ridiculous, or weird it seemed, because they loved the King! (Faith is learning how to be faithful to Christ no matter what!) I want to do what God asks, because he asks!

Mary had the faith that God would do something amazing. (Luke 1:26-38) Do you have the hope and faith that God wants to and will do great things through you? Saying, "Yes" is a moment to moment decision, a pledge of obedience; what would look different if God was your King and you said, "Yes?"

I am super glad that you can see God is being faithful for you as well. Even though so many things because of the health issues hasn't been what you thought you wanted at this point.
