Unlimited: Where Obedience Comes From

to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name’s sake [that is] (Romans 1:5b).

Many people have wrong ideas of where obedience comes from. I used to be one of those people.

I thought that obedience came from being more disciplined in doing the right things. I t’s like saying that obedience comes from obedience, which doesn’t make sense.

Indeed, I discovered that the more I focused on doing fewer wrong things and more right things, the less obedient I became. It was a strange situation to be in. Now I know it’s not uncommon.

Paul tells us that obedience comes from faith. The more faith you have, the more obedient you will be.

Obedience comes from faith.

Faith refers to a relationship of trust in God. If you focus on your faith, the more that you will grow in obedience. It makes sense, doesn’t it? It’s as if you had an indoor plant and you wanted bright glossy leaves. Do you polish the leaves or water the roots with the right nutrients? Of course not! Instead, you water the roots, and the leaves will be healthy as a result.

Focus on your relationship with God, and obedience will grow.

Spiritual Application

Think carefully about what you focus on the most in your Christian life: is it on doing right, or is it on being righteous through Christ? Is it on yourself or on Jesus? This is a crucial question.
