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?
God revealed to Abram His will. He gave him four imperatives: leave your country, leave your relatives, leave your father’s house, and go to a land I will show you (Genesis 12:1).
Abram obeyed only in part. He left his country and set out for the land, but he didn’t leave his relatives (Lot) or his father (Terah). Yet the New Testament remembers only where he did obey.
By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.
Hebrews 11:8 NASB
Such is the grace of God, Who treasures our obedience and marks it for eternity.
