The School of Obedient: "OBEDIENT 101"
Date: March 10, 2016
The most important issue in life is whether we're obeying God. It won't happen automatically; it must be learned and put into practice in our attitudes and actions. Obeying God is always the right thing to do, but it isn't always the easiest. Let me say that again! Obeying God isn't always easy, but it is always the wisest thing to do. Meditating on God's Word, following His instruction, and trusting Him to provide for your needs are the cornerstone of obedience. You will be rewarded with immeasurable blessings when you trust and obey God.
Obedience can be defined as doing what God says, how He says, and when He says to do it. It's not always easy, but it's essential if we want to live in accordance with God's will. Obedience can be a challenge, especially when feel tempted to believe that we stand to lose more through our obedience than we might gain. However, obeying God is essential to pleasing Him—not just in times of temptation, but at all times. This character study of obedient is designed to illustrate character trait using verses, stories, consequences of sin and blessings of obedience found through- out the Bible. This study was created using references from the Bible. We are a light in this world; people will judge God by observing our actions. This is why I knew in my heart it was time to do a study on obedience, so that my life could bring glory to God, especially in my job situation now. We will dig deep on the subject of "Obedience." Charles F. Stanley did a very good study on "Obedient 101," and I have always wanted to take time and study it; I will use some of his material I have read. I love his teaching! This study will be a little different from the others. We will have only a weekly study question, a weekly application question on obedience, and a weekly prayer. Study will start two weeks from today's date.
