Finding Joy in Obedience
I read an article this week on how the average home in our society no longer uses the word obey or obedience due to a perceived implication of unmerited authority and baggage inducing tendencies.
I have to be honest and tell you that I was never raised this way. My parents often reminded me of their authority over me in choosing what was best for me when I couldn't make the decision on my own. In a lot of ways, I feel our relationship with Christ is much the same. To be sure, we have freedom of choice and will, and yet Christ continually and tenderly reminds us, as his children, that he alone knows the way we should take and that he has our best interest at heart in all things. For me, obedience isn't simply a hierarchical system that informs me of my place and purpose. Obedience is the key to my joy in Christ. Letting go of my will and my desire to do things my way and in my time opens my spirit to receive God's mercy and grace in a way I could never achieve on my own. Ive linked the article below for anyone who would like to read further. God Bless!!!!!
