As an online missionary for Global Media Outreach (www.godlife.com), I received a letter from a dear woman in a developing country. She wrote:
“The Lord is awesome! I want you to know that your work is not in vain. You told me about God’s love, but you also talked about sin. You said God is not pleased when couples live together outside marriage. Your words touched and motivated me. You see I celebrated 30 years of marriage but I had never taken marriage vows and never had a ring on my finger!
“When I read your email I called our pastor and asked him to marry us. Praise God, we had a wedding and we got blessed with rings after 30 years!
“Praise God, after that the blessings began falling! Our son passed matric and now has a good job. I was very ill and God healed me and restored my life. We are being blessed financially. Our little girl Rayleen is doing well at school and is in matric. God continues to bless us and I praise God that I learned the importance of being obedient to HIM. Thank you for teaching me God’s way is the right way.”
Yes precious friends, obedience IS importance. I often see God rewarding my obedience as well. Obedience to Him is for our own good. Is it easy to be obedient? No. Yet God blesses us when we are.
- If you love me, keep my commands. John 14:15
- SONG: I Know Him – By Kathleen:
[This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
