Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
-James writes that we should humbly submit to God. Resist the devil by doing God’s will/commands & he will flee from us. By this we draw near to God & He draws near to us.
-In Mat 7:21, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
-Obedience invites the Spirit of God in us/ welcomes God’s blessings, identity & inheritance/ angels also obey God/ obedience is better than sacrifice/ Christs’ obedience made us all righteous
We humbly come to You Lord our Father; asking for forgiveness. Cleanse our hands from all uncleanness. Purify our minds & break all psychological strongholds that draw us far from You. Guide our lives in Your will as we obey Your commands. We praise You & honor You. Amen
Our Father who at in heaven; hallow be thy name….
Please meditate on this week’s theme; obedience.
