Minute Manna - #0077 - “Partial Obedience”
Friday, July 28, 2017
1 Samuel 15:23- For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the Word of the Lord, He has also rejected you from being king.
As small children, our parents often told us to do things and it was expected that we do them. However, there were those times that we may do what they asked us to do, just not to the full extent. For instance, “Clean your room!” Well, we’d move things around and put them in their proper places...and then stuff clothes under the bed...and our room appears to be “clean”. Once our parents find out that our clothes have been stuffed under the bed, then we get in trouble. Why? Because we were not obedient. Partial obedience is disobedience. We must obey the Word God speaks to us – even when we can’t see its benefits FOR US. When God speaks – His Word cancels out everything you had in mind.
