Because of these [sinful] things the [divine] wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience [those who fail to listen and who routinely and obstinately disregard God’s precepts] Colossians 3:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
We have all experienced the yeah buts.
Someone instructs us to do something we do not want to do and we all come up with the yeah buts. Yeah but _____ as an excuse for not doing as we are told to do.
Someone tells us not to do something and we come back with yeah but__________ for reasons we will do as we like.
The worst offence of course is when we are continuously disobedient unto Jehovahs direction in our life. We do so at our own peril.
If Jehovah directs us to do something it is for our own good or to advance His kingdom.
If Jehovah directs us not to do something it is because it will turn out bad for us or for others.
We will pay for our arrogant disobedience in painful fashion.
I have experienced it and it most certainly was not an enjoyable experience. Sad to say, I was a slow learner and it took decades before submitting to Jehovah with no thought of anything but obedience unto Him.
“Today we are overboard on belief but bankrupt on obedience.” — Author Unknown
Prayer: Please Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) help me, as You always have, to be an obedient child of Yours. I know that Your call to obedience is for my own good as well as for Your honour. It is my greatest joy to bring glory and honor to the one I love the deepest. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen
Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.
