AUGUST 17 – OBEY

08/17 Luke 6:46
“So why do you call me ‘Lord,’ when you won’t obey me? 47 I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then obeys me. 48 It is like a person who builds a house on a strong foundation laid upon the underlying rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against the house, it stands firm because it is well built. 49 But anyone who listens and doesn’t obey is like a person who builds a house without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will crumble into a heap of ruins.”
OBEY
We want to obey the Lord. Establishing a pattern of obedience requires me to listen to the Lord, read His Word and then do what He says. This is a good habit and is a habit that is critical to our spiritual growth. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Be a doer of the Word not just a hearer.
