Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Deuteronomy 26:16 - 27:26)
“Love Brings Obedience”
Text: Deuteronomy 26:17
“Today you have proclaimed the LORD to be your God, and that you will walk in His ways and keep His statutes, His commandments, and His judgments, and that you will obey His voice.”
“Love Brings Obedience,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. Love and Obedience go together like Faith and Works.
After reminding Israel of God’s law from Chapter 4 to Chapter 26; Moses now records this Vow of Israel: “The LORD is our God and we will walk in His Ways, Keep His Commands, and His voice.”
In other words Israel is proclaiming:
“We Love the LORD our God and because we Love Him we will walk in His Ways, Keep His Commands, and Obey His voice.”
Loving God is Demonstrated by Obeying Him.
Jesus said “if you Love Me you will keep My Commandments” (John 14:15).
“The identity of our God is demonstrated by the Direction of our Obedience.”
We Obey God because we Love God! Ooooh Rah!
This is what Love Does.
Because of His Great Love for you and I, Jesus Chose To Die For You and I, so that He Could Live With You and I forever.
Because of our Love for our Commander Jesus Christ, The Warrior Chooses To Die To Their Ways so that They Can Live In God’s Ways Forever!
This is what Love does, it Obeys.
This is the Vow of the Warrior today: “I Love You Jesus more than anyone or anything else; and by the Power of Holy Spirit working in me I will Walk in Your Ways, Keep Your Commands, and Obey Your Voice, At All Times.” Ooooh Rah!
