“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Acts 5:29




“Obedience to God comes before obedience to men.”


– Acts 5:29 (JB)






Read it again,

“Obedience to God comes before obedience to men”

…and again…

and consider whether it is a statement which reflects your principles.

Unbelievers would obviously simply dismiss the statement.

For some Christians, it could read as an obvious declaration

– so obvious that they do not even bother to give it a second thought

…and therein lies the problem,

because it gets overlooked time and time again.

For others, on the other hand, it is a statement of faith;

and a declaration that reflects the desire to submit oneself totally to God’s will

and to love and serve Him

even at the cost of fortune, of reputation,

and of life.

Do I count myself among the latter?

Do I place God first, no matter the circumstance,

and no matter the consequence?






Help me always cherish Your law and to obey You above all,

for Yours, Lord, is the obedience that gives freedom and life.
