The Obedience of Faith – Part 1

Key Verse

“By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went” (Hebrews 11:8).

Text — Hebrews 11:8-10


When your father tells you to wash the family car and you do it, it is a normal obedience. However when you are told by God to do the incredible or something unreasonable by human standard and you obey, then that is obedience of faith. It is like when Jesus told Peter to launch out into the deep and cast his nets into the sea where he had laboured with his fishing colleagues all night without catching any fish. His obedience of faith produced a net-breaking miracle of fishes. So was Abraham. It didn’t make sense for him to leave the comfort zone of the land of his fathers for an unknown place that God was sending him to. Yet, he “…obeyed; and went out, not knowing wither he went.”

My Christian friend, be ready always to do whatever the will of God is. We must obey Him whether the message is clear or not. The faith of our Church fathers is a living faith. If it worked for them, it will also work for us if we obey.


It worked for them


 Obey whatever God says to you.

Prayer for today

Holy father, not my will but yours always in Jesus’ name.
