Choose Obedience

1 Samuel 15:1-15

There is no such thing as partial obedience. When Saul, the king of Israel, carried out only part of God’s orders, he discovered that partial obedience is actually complete disobedience. Saul’s sin found him out, and he faced the consequences of disobeying God. He tried to blame his soldiers when the bleating sheep and lowing cattle gave him away, but eventually, Saul lost both his kingdom and his life because of he did not repent.

Life is full of choices, some of which are optional, some of which are not. One choice we must make is whether to obey or disobey God. The free choice of God imparts free response; His prevenient grace awakens us to His Spirit and works in our lives to influence, not determine, our choices.

After Saul was caught in his disobedience. He allowed pride to trap him in failures and disobedience.

The key to a right relationship with God is to choose to obey God in all circumstances.

    It is so good to hear Mrs. Gunter’s challenging words from these texts. She has been such an amazing servant of God and inspiring expounder of the Word for many years. She spoke in our church in Hernando, Florida, last year and was an excellent speaker, too. Thanks so much for featuring her words here.
