It Is Very Important to Obey God Who Has Spoken To Us Through His Word

Last week I wrote about God having the Authority in our lives. This week I want to share a few more verses along that line that explain why it is so important to listen to Him and obey.

2 Thessalonians 1:6-10 "For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed- for our testimony to you was believed."

Galatians 1:6-9 "I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received he is to be accursed."

2 Peter 3:16 "As also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction."

Revelation 22:18 & 19 "I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book; fi anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away form the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book."

If we choose not to follow God's word - according to these verse we are treading on some pretty dangerous ground. We should carefully study and seek to follow God's word!

Good solid teaching... we must study ourselves, and not just trust what someone else must say. So critical when truth can easily be distorted, if you haven't studied it out for yourself. Appreciate your good words Abbi :)

You are right, it is so very important that we study things out for ourselves. That we truly get into the Word and believe what it says and follow it.
