Obedience is not optional

I see such powerlessness in the Church to stem the tide of evil in this country and I believe I know a reason. So many believers say, “I prayed a prayer. I got baptized. Now I want to live a comfortable life.” WRONG! Jesus suffered for us and part of our job is to fill up his sufferings for the world. This life is short. If we try to keep it, we lose it. Let’s lose it for Jesus! This is what I read in my devotions this morning

Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His Word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. – 1 John 2:3-5

Let’s go from this place confident that we are in Christ and willing to suffer to make Him known!
