Simple Obedience

And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

2 John 1:6 NIV

Jesus replied, “Rather, how blessed are those who hear and obey God’s word.”

Luke 11:28 GW

Then Jesus said to them, “So wherever you go in the world, tell everyone the Good News. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

“These are the miraculous signs that will accompany believers: They will use the power and authority of my name to force demons out of people. They will speak new languages. They will pick up snakes, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them. They will place their hands on the sick and cure them.”

After talking with the apostles, the Lord was taken to heaven, where God gave him the highest position.

The disciples spread ⌊the Good News⌋ everywhere. The Lord worked with them. He confirmed his word by the miraculous signs that accompanied it.

Mark 16:15‭-‬20 GW

If you love God, you will obey His commandments.

Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.

Jesus commands us to tell everyone the Good News.

Are you obedient to do God’s word?

Or are you rebelling against God and refusing to submit to God’s will?

If you love Me, you will obey my commandments, says the Lord.

Have you forgotten the price I paid for your freedom?

Wonderful things are waiting, just on the other side of obedience.

Rebels inherit the wind.

My chosen children inherit eternal life.

The word of the Lord says that we shall preach the Gospel to all nations and then the end will come.

There are still billions of people who have not heard the Gospel yet.

If we love them, we will share the Good News that brings peace.

Peace between God and man.

Peace between man and neighbor.

We’ve given ourselves over to sin for too long.

It’s time to repent.

It’s time to return to following God.

It’s time to return to simple obedience.

We don’t need reasoning.

We don’t need arguments.

We need faith.

We need love.

They need hope.

There’s two types of people in this world.

Those who have hope and those that need hope.

Jesus is our hope.

If you love God, you will obey His commandments.

Go and make disciples.

Tell everyone the Good News.

What is success?

Success is obedience.

If you want to be successful, you must obey God’s word.

If you want to be a failure, ignore God’s word and do your own thing.

The choice is yours.

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

And this good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the world, as a testimony to all the nations; and then the end will come.

Matthew 24:14 NRSV
