Resolve to Obey!

28 08 2012

The spirit is always moving, yet if we don’t choose to partner with him, it is of no consequence.  Today in this post we look at the resolve of Paul to obey God’s Spirit no matter the consequences.


“I don’t know what will happen to me in Jerusalem, but I must obey God’s Spirit and go there. But I don’t care what happens to me, as long as I finish the work that the Lord Jesus gave me to do.”  Act 20:22-23 (CEV)


These are the words of Paul, who went through some very horrific things. He was jailed, whipped, beaten, stoned, and shipwrecked but all of this was of no consequence for his resolve to obey God’s Spirit overshadowed the physical and emotional cost!


Before his encounter with Christ Paul had been the one doing the persecuting, so he knew full well the cost, yet he had the resolve to obey. You and I may never endure such physical events as Paul, still there comes a time when all of us must find the resolve to obey the spirit no matter what comes.


When that moment comes, think about it now, will you have the resolve to obey, what will you do?


In our next post we will see the results of having the resolve to obey the Holy Spirit!
