Heb 11:17-19 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, "In Isaac your seed shall be called," concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.

Joh 15:5-12 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. "By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love. "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

The Bible is full of wonderful examples of people who were obedient to God. The Israelites, so unfaithful as they were, nevertheless, remained God's special people because Abraham was obedient. The heroes of the Bible were not perfect, for example, Abraham, however, they were obedient. God loves obedience. God rejoices when we choose to be obey Him. Obedience helps us to live as according to God's plan.

To obey God means more than just knowing the Bible; it means living everyday for the Lord, with the full assurance that, He has everything under control and knows what is best for you in your life. Try to please God by keeping His commandments. sw
