I know that obedience is very discoursed! Almost every week our pastors comment about it. For me this fact is due to the importance that God gives to them.
when we became Christians, quickly learned us how to do as believers: talk this, way here, appear this... Of course I know that the real conversion brings these attributes, however the lack of communion with the Holy Spirit and our easy adaptation to the rules, make too many people as machines.
Christians who do what they 'look better' for the moment. People who follow the way you want, but know that it is not this.

Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto Lord thy God... the Lord sent thee on a journey, and said, Go, and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites... then Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of Lord, and have gone the way which Lord sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites (when we become obstinate, try to deny the truth! we says that us be right and God be wrong.)But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the devoted things, to sacrifice unto Jehovah thy God in Gilgal
And Samuel said, Hath Jehovah as great delight in burnt-offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying Your voice? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.I Samuel 15:15-22

When God calls us, or chooses us is for obey Him. God has a purpose in everything to do. Obey God is not to say 'I did because it seemed better'. If you do not execute the orders of God to be made, the hours of prayer, reading the Bible, social works, visits to the misappropriated, songs of praise ... serve no. God seeks obedient children not good negotiators.
Obey is still better.
by Pr ª Patrícia Nanni
