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. Obedience even enriches our relationship with the Lord and improves our lives, but what else does obedience do?
John 14:30-31 tells us that through his obedience to the Father, Jesus revealed to us how much he loved God. Similarly, when we obey God, we are able to show others how much we love Him. It is through our actions and our words in our obedience to the Lord that we can share and spread our faith to others.
