Spiritual Sundays


Hello friends! Welcome to Spiritual Sundays hosted by Charlotte and Ginger. Please click here
http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/ to visit these charming ladies and their Spiritual Sundays participants.

OBEDIENCE TO GOD IS AN EXPRESSION OF OUR LOVE FOR GOD.


God requires the obedience of His followers, and Jesus placed great importance upon it. When we are obedient, we show God that we love Him and have more faith in Him than we do ourselves.

Oswald Chambers wrote: "The Lord does not give me rules, but He makes His standard very clear. If my relationship to Him is that of love, I will do what He says....If I hesitate, it is because I love someone I have placed in competition with Him, namely, myself."


"This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments." - 1 John 5:3


Thank you for stopping by. My son and his family are home for two weeks so this will be my last Spiritual Sunday post for a couple of weeks. I pray that you all have a lovely and blessed weekend.
