Folks we have suffered many things because of our failure to follow God strictly, we do that which pleases us and neglect instructions meant to lead us aright. All these are counted as disobedience to God. But when we follow strictly and dogmatically the commands and instructions of God, we become obedience to Him.
The language obedience is a major key to a successful life, either in the bible or outside the world, you have to follow rules and regulations as to enjoy the privileges and benefits of being a part of a body. Back in the garden first created by God Eden, every thing were peaceful and blissful until disobedience took away the place of obedience to God. For no reason should you eat the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, it carries a punishment.
&And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.... And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.& Genesis 2:8-10, 15-17 (kjvlite)
It would have been better for the man Adam to be obedient to the command of God for him those days and the entire race of mankind would have been enjoying harvest out labour and life forever. See, the consequence of his disobedience resulted serious challenge in the so serious competition in the labour market resulting to the survivor of the fittest. More also the reason for the continuous death of all who has die and will still die both young and old on earth.
Let us learn to follow God in every area of our live so as to enjoy life at its peak and best in obedience. For this is the joy of God and solely benefiting to us not God. Moses said for your own good! Deuteronomy 10:12-13. Good morning and do have a blissful week in Jesus name. Amen.
Every evil transmittable as a result of disobedience running in the lineage of your parent thriving to have its way in your life, is by the power of God buried and return to hell in Jesus name. Amen. The spirit of obedience to the perfect will and command of God for your living is hence endow you in Jesus name. Amen.
