What does God say about obeying?

Merriam-Webster defines “obeying” as: “to follow the commands or guidance of another.” Why would anyone obey the commands or guidance of another? In the military, disobeying could lead to punishment. In a family, it could lead to an argument. On the streets, it could lead to a ticket, a fight, an arrest, or something worse. However, obeying a mentor can lead us to a better life. Where does God’s will fit into all of this? God has told us His creation was the fulfillment of His Will, Col 1:16, “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created

What does God say about perfecting marriage?

Gail and I celebrated our 41stanniversary last April. God has taught us many things over the years, and improving our marriage has been one of the big ones.

Matt 22:36-37, “Master, which is the great commandment in the law?Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” Jesus already showed us God wants a relationship with us, for while we were still sinners, He gave up His life for us, Jn 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay

What Does God say about the divisions in our society?

We have divided ourselves into many different groups. Why? What do we gain by doing this? What does God have to say about divisions? Jesus prayed for all of us to be one in Him, as He is one in the Father, Jn 17:20-22, “Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:” Is God not saying there is only one eternal family and His word is being preached so all may have the opportunity to find their way
