Do We Obey God Or Listen To Man?


God let us have a free will to serve him or not to serve him...it's all up to us. God he don't push us to serve him and make us a robot or program us like an computer.

We come to him because we wants meaning in our life and peace in our hearts and willing to follow his laws under all circumstances.

Many people come in and change his law to fit they understanding and have an influence and direct
people to there understanding and not God's.

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

2 Timothy 4;4
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Acts 5:29

29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.


Reasons to Obey God...

1.The simplest reason is: It’s our duty.

2. In faith, we believe that God’s commands are for our own good.

3. Obedience should come from the heart.

4. But reward is not the only reason we work because we want too, for we are children of the King

5. Our love for God means that we want to bring him favorable.
