Hebrews 5:8 Although He was a Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered and making Him perfectly equipped, He became the Author and Source of eternal salvation to all who give heed and obey Him.
We are sons and daughters created by the Most High God, We should be obedient to all that He commands. Even His Son Jesus was obedient to do Gods will which ultimately lead to His death on the cross. The ultimate price and gift for us was paid by an innocent man that .was tortured, spat on, beaten, denied and mocked. He had the power in His hands to destroy all of those that hurt Him but He made a decision to be obedient and to surrender all. That obedience led to us having the gift of eternal life and also direct communication to Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit.
In Romans 1 it says that through Him that is Jesus we have received grace and apostleship to promote obedience to the faith and make disciples for His name sake among all the nations and this includes you, called of Jesus Christ and invited as you are to belong to Him.
What a wonderful invitation from God. He wants us to belong to Him, be His ambassadors and proclaim His love and that He is the KIng of KIngs.
James 2 says that a man is justified righteous before God through what He does and not alone faith.The time to sit around and only be a hearer of the word of God is over, our enemy the devil is prowling among us and is destroying whom he pleases. Time to be equipped with the word of God and to go to all nations and preach the good news, baptize them, deliver them from demons and most important to disciple them to be obedient to the will of God.
1 Peter says we must not conform ourselves to the evil desires of our former ignorance but as one who is called, be holy for God is holy. Lets look in the mirror and see what is reflected back at us. Be honest with ourselves. Are we vessels of honor or dishonor? Have we completely laid down the old man?
Are you still a slave to sin?
Let us decide this day once and for all whom we will serve and be obedient to, the world and all its pleasures that will fade or Jesus Christ the KIng of KIngs. who was, who is and who will come. The Alpha and Omega.Glory to His Holy name.
