Obedience is cool

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. Ps. 51:12

God isn’t looking for our obedience so He can kill our fun, add to our pain, or turn us into mindless sheeple. God foresees the fallout of our disobedience and knows how acting on our selfish desires and insecurities leads to broken relationships and messed up lives. Obeying God’s Word helps us have joyful, healthy relationships with Him and with one another.

Lord, lead me to obedience that is joyful and restorative rather than resentful or legalistic.
