One of the topics we touched on during our previous Men’s study in “Seeking HIM” was the topic of obedience. 

We were reminded, “Obedience is literally foundational to the CHRISTian life.  No obedience, no foundation.  Unless we are living in obedience to what GOD says, we have nothing upon which to build our lives, nothing upon which to rest for assurance, and nothing to rely on when we are tested.”  

JESUS said this is the way to be wise!  Trust HIM, follow HIM, obey HIM, and you will be building on a ROCK!

Obedience goes all the way back to the beginning of mankind, when GOD instructed man not to eat from the tree of life (Gen. 2:16-17).  In Romans we are reminded, “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by One Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. (Rom. 5:19) 

Through disobedience sin entered the world and through One Man the death of sin was abolished.  JESUS CHRIST was obedient to the FATHER and surrendered HIS life for you and me.  Likewise we should be obedient to HIM.  As mentioned earlier, to trust HIM, follow HIM, and obey HIM!
