Obedience Brings Glory

Md73pphIB-U

-James 4:1-10- We may find it hard to submit to Jesus because we like to be in charge.  This has been our problem since the beginning.  Adam and Eve ignored God’s warning and did what they wanted, which ended in disaster.  Like them, we at times prefer to ignore God’s wisdom.

But by giving control to God, we actually get to live a life where blessings overflow (John 10:10).  We’ll experience His love, which satisfies like no other.  Our usefulness in His service will be maximized as we operate in the Spirit’s power.  And obedience also brings glory to Him as well as blessings to us.  Surrender is the way to abundance.  Won’t you humble yourself and give it all to Jesus?
