Are our Blessings tied to Obedience

Before we tackle this subject, we must know what obedience with the Lord entails.  Obedience and blessings are in the framework of sanctification.  After a person is saved by his or her  choosing, than he or she starts living a life of obedience according to the rules and instructions of God’s word.  Obedience comes by one’s willingness to follow God at all cost.  We cannot do this alone.  We have to have a made up mind to know what God instruction is for us.  After all obedience is the written instruction from God for us to follow.

Following his instructions of obedience (after all he did inspire his Apostles to write his word for us), comes his blessings.  With so many activities around us, some good, some bad, our willingness to serve God means a lot to him.  Just imagine what the world would be like if Adam and Eve would have been obedient to his instructions.  Remember the beautiful Garden of Eden was their blessings from God from the beginning.

Thinking about blessings does not mean material things.  Sometimes our greatest blessings is having a thorn in our side so that we can stay focus on the will of God.  God blessings will happen through our obedience and a willing for God to work though us.

Obedience is:
A choice
A attitude
A Lesson
