Why? I asked God. He had just told me to do something. I wanted to know why. I deserved to know why. Before I obeyed. I should understand. God should explain Himself to me. Right?
Absolutely WRONG. Friend, we may never know why God tells us to do something. We may never understand. Or God may tell us. He may show us. He may reveal His reasons why. But our obedience to God should NOT be contingent on whether or not God tells us why, whether or not we understand, whether or not we like what God tells us to do, etc.
Our obedience should be contingent on this. Jesus Christ is Lord, and we are to humble ourselves and love, serve, obey, praise, worship, honor, revere, fear, adore, and glorify God with all our hearts because the Lord is God forever, AMEN!
Jesus tells us those who love Him are to obey Him. Let us humble ourselves before God almighty and do both. Let us love Him! Let us obey Him! And let us rejoice that Jesus Christ is Lord forevermore, Hallelujah, AMEN!
