BSF Lesson 19: Obedience

Sunday, April 3, 2016

Scripture Memory Verse - Romans 8:28 (NIV)
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

Obedience is doing what you're told, when you're told with a good, open heart. We learn this at an early age - obey your parents/ teachers/ coach/ authority figure. They hold us accountable and give us a consequence. God does this too, but the accountability piece is on us. If you disobey Him, there is always a consequence. Christian's understand this, non-Christians think they have bad luck or bad karma. Nope, sorry - that's God.

Have an open heart. Don't just do something because it's what God wants or because you think it makes you (look like) a good Christian. Do things for others because you want to, because you're sharing God's love through your acts of kindness.

{Please note that what I got from this lesson is not necessarily the same as what others did. People can get very different takeaways from the scripture and questions based on prior knowledge, life situations, faith, etc.}

Happy Sunday!
