Word #4: Obedience The phrase “Live like Jesus” is something we as believers always hear, but do we really understand what it means? Are we really living a life that radiates Christ? And are we truly abandoning our fleshly desires to pick up the cross that changed the destiny of all humanity? When I was younger I once heard a pastor say, “Partial obedience is disobedience.” And while everyone around me began to get up from their chairs, clapping and saying, “Amen!” I quietly sat in my seat. The phrase smacked me across the face and pierced me to the core. It is so true. I’ve realized we cannot go about our lives half-hearting our walk with God in hopes that He will give us a full-heart transformation. If we are truly living like Jesus, then why are we still sinning? The depth behind the phrase “Live like Jesus” is immeasurable. And although this is a great starting point for our relationship with Him, truly understanding its meaning is more beneficial than aimlessly trying to accomplish its task. Yet so many of us are running around like a chicken with its head cut off, only hoping we are living like Him. The reality is, God never intended for us to remain the same; He intended for us to remain obedient. For in remaining obedient, we will not remain the same. Jesus wants us to find our divine purpose of living like Him. In doing so, our lives will have a lot more purpose and a lot less confusion. Verse of the Day: Romans 2:13: “For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight.” Challenge: Tweet or post, “Partial obedience is disobedience. #30WordsBook”
