Walk in Obedience

When we choose to follow Jesus, God enrolls us in the same school of suffering His own Son endured. Most of us really want to follow Christ and learn His lessons, but we squirm at the idea of picking up His cross every day in order to grasp those lessons. We want the deep insights of following Him, but we don’t want the suffering that sometimes comes with it. We want intimacy with Jesus, but we don’t want to make the tough choice to patiently obey Him in our hardships.

So what does walking in obedience look like? Don’t complain when affliction comes. Don’t grumble a life’s disappointments. Forgive over and over again. Don’t let the sun set on your anger. Rejoice in suffering. Consider others better than yourself. A list of dos and don’ts? No, you’re following the Man of Sorrows and Lord of Joy, who gives you all the grace you need for every challenge.

Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing this. I have been struggling with my faith walk lately because of cancer and pain. I've allowed the enemy to steal my joy. I refuse to let it happen again. Thank you again for this devotional. Blessings, Allison
