A excellent devotional/inspirational classic that tells the beauty of obedience with devotion to the will/purpose of God for our life's here on earth. In words that challenge the stereotype of blind obedience, for the sake of obedience, because it is just one of the required checkboxes on the this list of what we must do.
Instead we are called into an acceptance of commands because of love.
We accept God's will; then willingly present ourselves, out of love driven obedience, to follow God's will.
Our obedience, which is nurtured by our love and devotion to God for His first loving us bears fruits as the relationship deepens. Hence greater obedience produces more love. Therefore, more fruit is born and the cycle continues deeper into a stronger relationship that blooms from a higher love of greater obedience, while the fruit of this labor of love continues to deepening.
“The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” - John 12:25
