Honoring Obedience

September 28, 2011

Isaiah 1:19 If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;

I don’t think we should look at willingness to obey God as a means to get something; as a means from which blessings are delivered to us. Willingness isn’t the way in which we earn something; yet, God in His word is very clear about honoring obedience, and the manner in which He does so is making us more like Christ. Who better to learn willingness from; who better to model willingness than Christ? He is the perfect picture of being willing. God will honor those who are willing, and since He knows the heart of man, I wonder what He thinks of those who fake willing obedience?
