Beloved,
There is no obedience apart from faith. True obedience comes from the heart and is a natural response to a revelation of the gospel of Jesus Christ in Whom we are established in the beautiful mystery of sanctification. Everything flows in perfect harmony as we are securely rooted in faith which works by love and leads us into The Obedient Life. (Rm. 16: 25-26; Gal. 5:6).
 
THE OBEDIENT LIFE
 
The obedience of faith
There’s nothing like it
It’s way is perfect
 
It’s steps are ordered
In peaceful bliss
The heavenly kiss
 
Surrounds you
In all you do
Securing you
 
In sanctifying love
A dreamer’s refuge
Too good to be true
 
Your hiding place
Where grace waits
Revealing the Christ
 
You are sanctified
In Him
Protected and perfected
 
Simply elected
To have Him
To know Him
 
To obey Him
By faith
You are safe
 
Quietly resting
In eternity’s arms
Free from harm
 
Every alarm
Stilled by trust
You are loved
 
Perfectly
Secretly
Amazingly
 
How can it be?
So easy
Just believing
 
In reality
What you don’t see
With natural eyes
 
Total surprise
How love works
How grace waits
 
To reveal the Son
The work all done
Before you start
 
Faith in your heart
Just receiving
Just believing
 
Just obeying
Naturally
Perfectly
 
Under love’s canopy
No fear there
Only love’s care
 
You abide there
Where you are known
Where you are chosen
 
Where nothing invades
Your private place
Beholding His face
 
You exude faith
Rooted in love
You please His heart
 
Just staying there
Just being you
Just being true
 
To your nature
A new creature
In Christ
 
Enjoying your surprise
Perfectly sanctified
In the obedient life
