OBEDIENCE AND SOUND DOCTRINE OF CHRIST

OBEDIENCE AND SOUND DOCTRINE OF CHRIST
(Judges 3:4) "And they were to prove Israel by them, to know whether they would hearken unto the commandments of the LORD, which he had given to their fathers by the hand of Moses." (1 Samuel 15:22) "And Samuel said unto the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. "
The word obedience, which in the original Hebrew means "hear", "hearing", and that was literally taken as "hear under", we express the way God wants us to hear his voice, and be attentive to act as to His perfect will. (Jer 35:13) "Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my words? says the Lord. "The disobedience of Adam, the first representative man, and the perfect obedience of the second, Jesus Christ, are decisive factors in the fate of all. (Acts 4:19,20) "But Peter and John answered them, Whether it be right before God to obey you rather than God, 20 because we can not but speak the things which we have seen and heard."
When Adam ignored obedience plunged humanity into the consciousness of guilt, condemnation and death (Romans 5:19) "For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous, "(1 Corinthians 15:22)" For as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive. "
The unwavering obedience of Christ "DEATH" (Philippians 2:5-11) "5 Let the same mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, and death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and in earth, and under of the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father, "(Hebrews 5:8)" "; 10:5-10) got justice (acceptance with God) and life (fellowship to with God) FOR ALL WHO BELIEVE IN HIM (Romans 5:15-19).
Obedience is born of gratitude for the grace received (Romans 12:1), not the desire for merit and justifying one's self in the sight of God. Besides obedience means:
Imitate God in holiness (1 Peter 1:15)
A Christ in humility and love (John 13:14, Philippians 2:5, Ephesians 4:32, 5:2) But each of us unbelievers or Christians, we belong to a level of obedience, you do not know which one you are? , I invite you to meet me:
1. No knowledge of the law of God:
In this you will find people who have not known God. As the argument of some is the refusal to follow commands. Christianity promises us free; promises never separate us. Features like:
Lack of FE, for faith is obedience, nothing, literally nothing.
He acted according to human knowledge, but this is limited and relative.
No act thinking other people or God. It might even be "Christian" people have this way of life, it is important to assess whether I am showing and reflecting with my life and attitudes, the new creature in Christ I am.
Two. I know and start to follow:
It is when I am realizing that my actions affect and influence others. But even I have to let other things. Accept the will of God never leads us to that miserable feeling that it is useless to struggle. God does not ask that discouraged, weak, sleepy indolence gratification. God asks us something, and something strong. He asks us to cooperate with Him actively want what God wants, our only goal is your glory. Level with features like:
Renounce sin and bondage
I begin to know the path of obedience
More die myself missing
Three. Dying to myself
It is the way and the goal to which God wants us to target, for God has no need of puppets. God gives to man the privilege to live as you choose. But if you live without God in this life, then you must also live without God in the next. The true meaning of Christianity is to have a perfect communion with God continuously, but in order to obtain it, we need to also take up the cross, and we refuse, our goals, desires and dreams, that God begins his work. Only in this way reach the true path of obedience. THE UNIQUE FEATURE OF THIS LEVEL IS: "I NO LONGER LIVE, BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME"
Conclusion:
We can continue to live outside the will of God, indeed, but we lose, do not lose God, do not lose the pastor, not lose my leader, just me, who I can lose your salvation.
