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

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“Obedience to God comes before obedience to men.”

.

– Acts 5:29 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

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?

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

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

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