Obedience or Independence?
"If you love Me, keep My commandments" (John 14:15)
Today during my quiet time I was reading Oswald Chambers. This struck me...
"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 without hesitation. (I always seems to hesitate) If I hesitate, it is because I love someone I have placed in competition with Him, namely, myself. Jesus Christ will not force me to obey Him, but I must. And as soon as I obey Him, I fulfill my spiritual destiny. My personal life may be crowded with small, petty happenings, altogether insignificant . But if I obey Jesus Christ in the seemingly random circumstances of life, they become pinholes through which I see the face of God. I will discover that through my obedience thousands were blessed. When God's redemption brings a human soul to the point of obedience, it always produces (GOD produces - not me!!!!) If I obey Jesus Christ, the redemption of God will flow through me to the lives of other, because behind the deed of obedience is the reality of Almighty God!"

I am a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, a mother-in-love and a Grandma. There is nothing more important to me than daily communion with my Lord and Savior. My family means everything to me! But without the Grace of God.....I am nothing!
