To anyone who needs help walking with the Lord,
Today as I joined the 7 ladies in our small group, I saw again an interest in God's Word! When one of the ladies read John 14:23-24, we realized we had a choice to make. The choice was to either obey Jesus or not to obey Jesus. In these two verses Jesus says:
"If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. . . .
He who does not love me will not obey my teaching."
So I shared a diagram with these dear women. It's about following the Lord, sorta like following a road as you drive your car. The road is showing you the way and the Lord will show us the way to go if we follow Him. However, sometimes we slightly go off course and run on the rough shoulder of the road, it's a warning to get on the smooth road. Same in our life, if we veer to the right or to the left and stop following the Lord's path, we can get in big trouble or maybe a little trouble at first. And then we need to get right with our Lord and ask for forgiveness. We need to get back on the road, the Lord's path, to faithfully going in the direction He desires. As we live day after day we will see how faithful our God is and His ways are always the best! Week 2, day 4 in the Bible study The Calm Within talks about obedience. In Acts 5:17-42 Peter and the disciples wanted to "obey God rather than men!" Is that your desire? How can you do this today? And tomorrow? What is God calling you to do or give up? It's your choice, so CHOOSE WISELY.
