Obedience is not only a Christian lifestyle, it is also a Christian virtue. We should not just read the Bible and meditate upon it's teachings, we also need to obey them.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
When we read the Bible and listen to the preacher and then do the opposite, we are not being obedient but disobedient.
Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.
The Christian lifestyle through obedience demonstrates our love for the GOD of our salvation. We don't truly love GOD if we refuse to do what His Word teaches.
1 John 2:17
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
This world and its lustful spirits will pass away, but if we are obedient to the will of GOD, we will live forever. We need to pray that the LORD will give us the spirit of obedience, so we can live according to His doctrine.
We are not living the Christian lifestyle if we lack faith in GOD. The one thing that move GOD is faith.
And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
This woman with the issue of blood was sick and tired of living with her condition for many years. She had been following Christ and one day decided that if she could just touch the hem of His garment, she would made whole.
When she touched Him, immediately her fountain dried up. Jesus asked; "who touched Me?" The woman fell at His feet and confessed that it was her. Jesus then let it known unto her that it was her faith that had made her whole.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Faith in GOD can move mountain. Jesus said if we have faith as small as a mustard seed, we can cast all opposition out of our way and they must obey.
Be careful how you ignore your devotions in the mornings and at night when you're about to retire.
Prayer is like the foundation of our relationship with GOD. The Christian lifestyle of the man who don't pray is not serious about the things of GOD.
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
In this verse, GOD didn't say "If we pray, but when we pray." This is telling us that GOD expects us to pray. We don't need to make a promotion out of it. We should shut away privately and pray to our Father, and he will reward us publicly.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Be careful how you go through each days and not communicating with your LORD. Be careful how you ignore your devotions in the mornings and at night when you're about to retire. Be careful because your adversary the devil is walking about like a hungry lion to devour weak Christians.
We need to pray that the LORD will give us the spirit of obedience, so we can live according to His doctrine.
If you don't pray you wont stay. Pray without ceasing. Prayer is significantly important in your Christian lifestyle, and evil spirits have to flee when you get down on your knees.Praying Men
