Trust and Obey

May 19, 2017
By Pastor Allen

What rules will you follow today?  Many have become second nature.  Others, will take an extra amount of thought and energy.  The Anarchists want to undermine the rules in our society and yet it's those rules that allow them to meet and give them the freedom to express those ideas.  The Atheist would like to believe that there is no God.  C.S. Lewis said, "Atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that is has no meaning."  In other words, this is God's universe therefore by breathing His air and submitting to gravity, we follow His rules.

Our passage this week is John 14:15-31 where Jesus says three times, "If you love me, you will obey me".  But we are given a reward if we choose to obey. That's good news, for He knows how we are made.  We need that incentive.
