“Trust God.” This incredibly important message has become almost trite in the modern church today. Some Christians talk about trusting God, but oftentimes their actions show that they really only trust themselves. Others who actually have a deep trust in the providence of God ignore the portion that requires sacrifice, “Obey God.”
Obedience seems to be a dried-up concept in many American churches that just pander to the felt needs of the congregation. Both trust and obedience are required to truly serve and worship God. It means accepting Jesus not only as you savior, but also as your Lord.
“Examine yourself, to see if you are in the faith.” These words, from 2 Corinthians 13:5, are the most important thing you can do for yourself today. Nobody is guaranteed tomorrow. Don’t wait. Trust and Obey God right now!
