OBEDIENCE – important aspect of spiritual growth

Deuteronomy 5:
Moses called all the people of Israel together and said, “Listen carefully, Israel. Hear the decrees and regulations I am giving you today, so you may learn them and obey them! (New Living Translation)
The people had entered into a covenant with God, Moses commanded them to listen, learn, and obey.

Christians have also entered into a covenant with God (through Jesus Christ) and should be sensitive to what God expects. Moses’ threefold command to the Israelites is excellent advice for all God’s followers.

1. Listening is absorbing and accepting the information we read and hear about God.2. Learning is understanding its meaning and implications.

3. Obeying is putting into action all we have learned and understood.
All three parts are essential to a growing relationship with God.

Thank you. Be blessed!
