Blessings Overflow

Wed, 04/20/2011 - 12:27 -- Joyce Long

“He that hath my commandments, and keepth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. “ John 14:21

Jesus said, "Those who love me and obey my commandments will receive the Father’s love and blessing. And I too will love them and continue to reveal myself to them."

Yesterday, Brenda came into the shop for her first head covering. When asked how she decided to wear the head covering while fellowshipping in a “non-covering” church, she responded with a simple, yet profound answer, “obedience, obedience to God’s Word”.

Her understanding of scripture and obedience to God has influenced other areas of her life. She is attending classes where the required dress code violates her conviction of modesty. She approached the instructor and was granted special permission to wear a skirt; a blessing and reward of obedience. Her testimony of love and obedience was beautiful.

Are you a “Brenda” weighing the cost of obedience to God’s commands? Obedience will bring peace; a peace that passeth understanding and blessings overflowing.
