Obedient Children of God

Are you an obedient child of God?  Only you and God can answer that.  This weekend we are going to be looking at Bible verses which deal with the subject of OBEDIENCE.


Now is a good time to read each of the selected scripture verses and see for yourself. 


Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”  John 14:23 | NIV |


My son, keep your father’s command and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.  Proverbs 6:20 | NIV |


Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.  Deuteronomy 5:33 | NIV |


Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.  James 1:22 | NIV |


Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him.   1 John 3:21-22 | NIV |


For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.   Romans 5:19 | NIV |


Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12:2 | NIV |

He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”   Luke 10:27 | NIV |


Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.   Romans 12:11 | NIV |


Then he said to them all: Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.  Luke 9:23 | NIV


We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.   Acts 5:32 | NIV |

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.   Romans 12:1 | NIV |


There are many others.  Perhaps you will want to search your concordance and look at a few more.  Certainly, a subject like obedience, mentioned or referred to numerous times in the Bible, is one which demands our attention.  May we all study and learn to be obedient children of the Father.
