About The Power of Obedience Series
Obedience is not just a reflexive performance of God’s will. It is richer than we know, and its power is known by too few. Would you be one of them?
Surrender, constant and constantly chosen, brings a bliss, the very ecstasy of the Lord, whose delight in the will of God is not a mild, passive yielding. Jesus’ delight is exuberant and mystical. We labor so heavy handed. But He is utterly light hearted.
Love so consumes Him for the Father that He thinks not of Himself – ever.
…I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.
John 5:30b AMPC
