Scripture of the Day - January 13, 2012

Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

Obedience and commitment are evil words these days. No one wants to commit and for sure no one wants to obey. Those terms are for the dark ages, we're enlightened now, we don't need to obey, we shall do what is right in our own eyes. We shall interpret God's word our own way and leave out all that nasty obedience stuff we don't like. As long as we feel good about ourselves that's all that matters.
I have disturbing news...Jesus is coming back for a holy church, without spot or wrinkle! He is not coming back for a stubborn rebellious generation who will not submit themselves to God. Christ loved the church so much that He died for it and it is this obedient church He is coming back for. He is the bridegroom coming back for the bride who loves Him.
You may ask "how will He know that I love Him?" Jesus answered that question when He said, "if ye love me obey my commandments". There ya have it, cut and dry, plain and simple, no loop holes.
