OBEDIENCE

Devotional for Friday, March 18, 2022


Morning Psalm 19:7-11

Noon Psalm 15

Evening John 14:23


One day at home, I was enjoying some time with my grandchildren, while they were playing, one of them came crying. He had a small wound made by a knife. I tried to explain to him that these are the consequences of disobedience, since I had told them many times that they could not play with dangerous objects. While I was talking to him, I thought: How many times do we disobey like stubborn children! As Peña de la Presa said: "Since our first parents disobeyed, much pain and suffering has come to the world." Even when we know the consequences that disobedience brings to our lives, we continue to hide like the first couple, to do what we want and thus, suffer a small wound or perhaps a deeper one, and sometimes even death. God have mercy on us and help us to obey his commandments. Because not obeying them would be the worst disobedience. When he comes and finds us in obedience to his will, he will give us the most beautiful and greatest of rewards: An eternity with Him in the eternal kingdom.

Written by Merari Martínez, translated by Maria Elena Cardona


 

Morning Psalm 19:7-11

7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Noon Psalm 15

1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.


Evening John 14:23

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

 

Prayer Guide: [Honduras-Choluteca] and [Perú-Lima]

March's challenge: Do everything possible so that your life can be a visible testimony to all men as Christians living in the likeness of Christ. Everyday, praise your Creator. Keep a constant praise on your lips. Listen to Christian praise and worship music with your family. Go to Church, not only to be a spectator, but a worshiper. Worship as you pray, worship as you read the Bible, worship in your illness, always worship.


Annual Bible reading: 1 Samuel 15, 16, 17
