Obedience to the Faith

I find it interesting that obedience is only mentioned two times in the New Testament. The first is the obedience that Christ demonstrated to the Father-Hebrews 5:8, and the second time it is is found in 1 Peter 1:13,14 -As obedient children we are to ‘ rest our hope fully upon the grace that is brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ’. Christ is the Obedient One.
God gave His best ,and held nothing back. God is not looking for our obedience in order to bless us. His blessings or favor is not dependent on our being obedient, It is because of Christ’s obedience to the cross. Once we rest in the grace, of the revelation of Jesus Christ the giving of our tithes , our time, etc is not something we have to do, it is something we get to do. I have often heard it said,’obedience brings the blessing’.But actually this is not true in light of the cross .Jesus’ obedience brought the blessing.It is not dependent on my obedience, it is dependent on Christs obedience, I just have to believe in what He did, and that God sees as obedience. Obedience of faith.

I am a Christian, a child of the Most high God, a wife to one, a Mother of two, and a Sister to many.
