“This is love, that we walk according to His commandments.” II John 1:6 Our rebellious willful streaks often lead to unhappy outcomes. In anger, Moses struck the rock to get water rather than just speak to it as God had commanded. In doing so he forfeited the privilege of entering the Promised Land with his people (Numbers 20:7-12). Jonah disobeyed an order to o to Nineveh and was given 3 days to think about his choice – inside a big fish. What does it take for us to obey Him? Will we obey simply because we love Him? Obedience is another word for love and loyalty.
