Obedience brings blessings. Jesus Christ is our perfect example of obedience.
There was a man once who said he was doing it strictly out of obedience, not out of love. He saw this because Christ asked that the cup be removed from him. He didn’t want to do it. My companion looked at him and said, “Have you ever done something for someone, even though you didn’t want to, because you loved them?”
Love should be the motivation behind our obedience. Do you love God enough to…
go to church on Sunday instead of watching the superbowl?
keep the word of wisdom?
live the law of chastity?
keep the ten commandments?
I can promise you that when we show obedience to Heavenly Father, and we follow that example of Jesus Christ, that you will be blessed.
“As we walk in obedience to the principles and commandments of the gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, “we enjoy a continual flow of blessings promised by God in His covenant with us. Those blessings provide the resources we need to act rather than simply be acted upon as we go through life. … Obedience gives us greater control over our lives, greater capacity to come and go, to work and create.”
