“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.”
-1 John 2:16 (RSV)
“I will not serve” has become the battle cry of the human heart. And this stance of disobedience is responsible not only for man’s personal disorder but for the disorder which exists between individuals and nations and between man and the rest of creation. Out of union with God and no longer functioning in the light of truth, the soul creates its own moral standards, false and dark, with a sense of reality that is skewed and broken.
Disobedience causes so much trouble in our life. Where do you struggle with disobedience in regards to what God has asked of you? What specifically can you work on today to obey Him?
