In his excellent book, "Growing Up God’s Way," John A. Stormer has these things to say: "Obey' is the most important single word in the Bible. Being obedient is the key to receiving all of God’s blessings. To be saved from sin and Hell, a person must obey God’s command…Acts 16:31. There are a multitude of other material and spiritual blessings for those who obey God." (pages 103,4)
This current age is characterized by rebellion. Rebellion and disobedience come directly from a man’s sinful nature. See: II Timothy 3:2 and Romans 5:19a. We see rebellion in the home, rebellion in society, rebellion in our churches – all stemming from a basic rebellious attitude toward God. Now, as never before, we need to seriously concern ourselves with this subject of OBEDIENCE.
John A. Stormer gives the following explanation of obedience:
"Obedience is doing what those in authority request or want. It is the opposite of ‘doing your own thing.’ True obedience involves doing what an authority wants immediately, respectfully, joyfully, and completely. Obedience requires the submission of the will of the individual to those in charge. True obedience ultimately stems from submission to God." (Ibid: page 103)
