2018 is Going to be Great: Obedience Leads to Intimacy

New Year’s Resolutions may be hard to keep, but pleasing God is one goal that we can all do. Romans 5:8 tells us that we please the Lord simply by being His children, and 1 John 5:1-3 says that we obey God because He is our loving Father. But what does obedience do for us?

John 14:15-24 tells us that obedience enriches our relationship with the Lord because obedience leads to intimacy. It is an intentional and natural result of loving God, which leads us to have a deeper relationship with Him. Therefore, in order to have a great 2018, in what ways will you obey God in order to become closer to Him?
