The Obedience of Christ

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” –2 Corinthians 10:3-5 KJV


“It is not said that after keeping God’s commandments, but in keeping them there is great reward. God has linked these two things together, and no man can separate them—obedience and power.” –F. W. Robertson


“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. –Genesis 6:5.      (Picture credit: TheSwordbearer.org)

“And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?” –Matthew 9:4 KJV

“Then the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness.” –Luke 11:39 NKJV

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” –Hebrews 4:12 KJV


“Think like a man of action and act like a man of thought.” –Henri Bergson


Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,  but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name.” –Philippians 2:5-9 NKJV

“For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps.” –1 Peter 2:21 KJV

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” –Galatians 2:20 KJV

“For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.” –2 Corinthians 2:9 KJV


“Only he who believes is obedient; only he who is obedient believes.” –Dietrich Bonhoeffer


The Blessings of Obedience

If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.” –Isaiah 1:19 KJV

“For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.” –Romans 5:19 NKJV

“But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” –James 1:25 KJV

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” –Revelations 22:14 KJV
