Obedience is Enough for God

“He replied, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.’ ”

– Luke 11:28

It is so common in life for us to think that we must reach a certain level of perfection before we can progress forward. Before we can advance toward our goals, we want to have all our ducks in a row, and dot every “i” and cross every “t.” Yet God is encouraging us to go into our community and make an effort now. Too often, we don’t pray with people who are hurting. Our first thought is, “Oh, they will not want that.” We fail to meet people and engage them in conversation. We don’t look for a new church. We won’t read a new book. We don’t do the things we need to do to become who we’re called to be. And that’s all God is asking us to do. The aforementioned are examples of God’s little book of instructions for us. Our failure to act will prevent us from becoming the person we should be. 

If you comply with God’s requests, you will be amazed at how your life will change. Can I tell you something? Obedience is enough for God. The life of faith or having a great life for God isn’t really about taking huge leaps, as we often think. It is not about taking large steps either — it’s about walking. Following Christ involves taking a step. The thing is, you don’t just take one step, you have to take several steps, right? And that’s ok.

Friend, what’s interesting is that when you do a lot of little things in your life and make mistakes over and over, it actually ends up being the catalyst for great things you’ll accomplish in your life in the long run. God loves when we hear him and choose to take steps of action!


Father, help me to fulfill your requests. Thank you for changing my life!


Are there any reasons why you fail to act on God’s instructions?

  1. Thank you for your comment. I will donate to people in need and talk to people in need.I try to talk to my brother in law. He is 88 years old. He has multiple health problems. He has been seeing seven doctors. My sister is 87 years old with health problems. I have tried to comfort him with a near death experience i had in Vietnam.A conversion to Christ. They might have talked about it in the hope it will help. I also talk to other family members about God a little and the blessings in their lives my other sister and brother in law. I mostly talk to other family members. They are pretty much all i see. I have some faith in God because Satan has taken over my life mostly. I do not know what comes from God anymore. I think but do not know what comes from The Lord. I have tried to be Christ Like. Well i guess that is all for now. tom
