“Obey God Always”

Key Verse

“Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:29

Text — Acts 5:25-29


A chorus we often sing in the church goes thus; “Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe. Doing exactly as the Lord commands, doing it heartily. Walking in the light, with the attitude right on the narrow way. Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe!”

Many children sing this chorus joyfully clapping their hands, but not many do what it says. Jesus Christ showed His disciples the way to God’s kingdom and He went about with them still preaching God’s kingdom to sinners. When it was time for Him to return to heaven, He commanded His disciples to continue preaching the gospel. The command has been passed to us in our own generation. Peter and the other disciples obeyed Jesus’ command and several times they were rejected and imprisoned.

In the night an angel of God opened the prison doors and the apostles went out to still preach the gospel. They were fearless. That is who Christ wants you to be – a fearless preacher of the gospel. As you obey, God will protect you from all harm and many sinners will come to Christ.
