JULY 31 – OBEDIENCE

7/31 John 14:29-31
I have told you these things before they happen so that you will believe when they do happen. “I don’t have much more time to talk to you, because the prince of this world approaches. He has no power over me, 31 but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. Come, let’s be going.
OBEDIENCE
We see the obedience of Jesus to the Father. He calls us to do as He does. Obey the Father. Follow Him. Be about the work we are assigned. Be confident of His presence and power. Jesus life is focused on us. We need to do a better job of focusing our life on Jesus.
How do we do that: 1. Daily quiet time and prayer time with Jesus, 2. Read God’s Word as though our ministry depended on it (it does), 3. Set aside each day time to listen to the Lord, 4. Ask Jesus to lead, guide and direct you-moment by moment, day by day so that you will constantly be equipped to serve Him, 4. Put His life to work in our life, 5. Spend time with other Christians, 6. Learn about the people around you, not to gossip but to serve-we are servants and we need to learn that, 7. Trust the Lord and live like He was in charge of your life.
