Why obey?
« on: September 09, 2019, 09:03:34 am »
People have various reasons for obeying or trying to obey God.  As my husband and I were talking this weekend I began wondering what all your reasons for following or obeying were.



A few I have run across.....to get to heaven

Because God wants us to obey

Because God can send us to hell

Because we love God



Which one do you fall into or is there another reason?

Because there is no one or anything else that gives my life and existence meaning, purpose and hope. God gives me all of that and even more, he loves me.

I just want to add that I love God and always have ever since I was a small child.

It is a commandment of our lord Jesus and savior.

Blade
1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

true, but why?  Why is that commandment of enough significance to spur us to obedience?
