Thank you so much. I wasn't going to post it but it has been on my desk for weeks and…
But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men. (Acts 5:29 NKJV)
ACTS 5 IN ITS ENTIRETY
Thought for the Week: We should obey man only insomuch as in obeying him we also obey God. It is very important that we understand that obeying God is paramount. We must tell our mind, sometimes, to shut its mouth. Because then we won’t have a bunch of negative thoughts questioning why we should obey. We will then be disciplined enough to do what is required of us as believers. Furthermore, we must understand that through obedience Christ Jesus died to save us. The word of God says that Jesus was obedient until death, and God gave Him a name that is above every name. And at the mention of the name of Jesus every knee will bow.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, You have declared that if we love You, we will keep Your commandments. To walk with You on Your path is to avoid sin. We must always be ready to let our sinful nature die, lest it rises and we die. Therefore, give me a willing and able desire to follow You. Wherever it may take me, let me follow You as a lamb follows their shepherd. In Your holy name, I pray. Amen.
