Last time I started teaching on the signs of faith and I pointed out that the first sign of faith is believing that Christmas is the Lord and Saviour and also what the Word of God says about you as a child of God, what you can do and what you shouldn’t do. So let’s go to the second sign of faith
signs of faith
By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and went out to a place he was going to receive as an inheritance. He went out, not knowing where he was going.( Hebrews 11:7-8)
Ladies and gentlemen if you truly believe and accept the word of God, then you must obey it and do what it says. The strength of your faith is that you obey the word of God, for Abraham obeyed by faith and sine we also live by faith we must hen also be obedient to the Word of God. Look, his ego is inflated; he is without integrity. But the righteous one will live by his faith.( Habakkuk 2:4)
Samuel asked, “How can I go? Saul will hear about it and kill me!” The Lord answered, “Take a young cow with you and say, ‘I have come to sacrifice to the Lord.’( 1 Samuel 16:2). Ladies and gentlemen obedience is worship to God and it’s the year of worship he delights in the most, Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Better to draw near in obedience than to offer the sacrifice as fools do, for they ignorantly do wrong.( Ecclesiastes 5:1) before you sacrifice to God make sure you first obey Him because only Fools prefer to offer presents than to offer their corporation.
when you have faith in the word of God, the word of God becomes a part of you and It natures you into a being that God wants you to be, it makes of know the voice of God and keen to hear and obey It.My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: (John 10:27). Let your faith lead you to obey the Word of God at all times no matter what people say or do to you, it’s better you are called the scum of the earth but you are a friend of God.Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4:4)
Let us grow in obedience in the word of God so that our lives will be pleasing before our heavenly Father.Shalom
