Walk in Obedience

Description

Stick to your purpose in Christ. Don't take your eyes off of what really matters.

He has told you, O man, what is good;

and what does the LORD require of you

but to do justice, and to love kindness,

and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Benjamin Disraeli, who long ago served as Prime Minister of Great Britain, once said, “The secret of success is constancy of purpose.” Now,what does that mean? Well, all too often, people today flex and change in their life’s purpose. They act on impulse, not thinking about how their actions will ultimately impact their lives.

Think about it… there may have been a time when things were tight financially, but you were lured into spending money on something you really didn’t need. Or, maybe you were having a great day of walking in obedience when that old temptation hit and you, once again, fell into its trap. Those things happen when, for a moment, we take our eyes off what really matters.

Yet, constancy of purpose in the Christian life means staying focused when the world, the enemy, and the flesh try to take your focus off what’s important and tempt you with the lure of immediate gratification. But the truth is that those things which seem to fulfill that impulse will never truly give you joy. Sticking to your purpose in Christ, however, will.

So whenever you’re tempted to follow an impulse that’s not of God, remember your ultimate purpose: to do what’s right, to be kind, and to walk humbly with your God!

Steer clear of spiritual traps by sticking with your godly purpose!
