“We are witnesses of these things, as is the holy Spirit that God has given to those who obey him.”
What is your attitude towards obedience? Are you humble in your obedience to God and His Church or do you seek your own way? The saints are from drastically different levels of influence- from poor beggar to kings and queens. One of the things they have in common is their obedience to God whose ways are above our ways. Pray for greater obedience and reflect on your attitude to the authority God has placed over your life.
