1 101913 Obedience

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good, yes He is good. Today we are going to read what the Old Testament has to say about obedience, so get ready to be blessed.

Today’s Prayer

FATHER, even though some scholars suggest that the Bible needs to be reinterpreted to appeal to today’s reality, remind us, Lord, that although society changes, You do not change. You have said that certain acts are sinful. This is Your decision, for this is Your universe. Oh Lord, help us to be mindful of Your Word as Your Holy Spirit reveals Your truth to us. Help us, lest we be swayed by every ideology or cult, and end up worshiping “another Jesus.*” In Jesus’ holy name we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

Blessings for Obedience

Deuteronomy 28:1-14 –

“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God: Your towns and your fields will be blessed. Your children and your crops will be blessed. The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed. “The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven! “The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. “If you obey the commands of the Lord your God and walk in his ways, the Lord will establish you as his holy people as he swore he would do. Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the Lord, and they will stand in awe of you. “The Lord will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom. You must not turn away from any of the commands I am giving you today, nor follow after other gods and worship them.

Quote of the Day

We need passion in our faith! Instead of praying, ‘If I should die before I wake’, we should pray, ‘Lord wake me up before I die!’ ~Tony Campolo~
