Simple, part 3: Obey

The church often mistakes Christian obedience as the first step in the Christian life. As a result, for many people the Christian faith becomes a rule-based religion. Instead, the Scriptures reveal that Jesus’ initial invitation is to follow him. He invites us to follow him until we begin believing that He is indeed who he says he is. This belief that God loves us and has the best in store for us, then, becomes the reason we obey. November 21, 2021
