Sunday Meditation – The Joys of Obedience

“Consider how unable and unfit you are to govern yourself. We are blind, ignorant and biased by a corrupted will and turbulent passions. Consider the rewards prepared for obedience and the punishment for disobedience. God is far from being indifferent whether you obey His laws or not. Consider the joys of full obedience. All is at ease within us, our food is pleasant, our sleep is sweet and our labor is easy and our life is a pleasure. God owns us and our conscience speaks peace and comfort to us. Consider our endless rewards: well done, good and faithful servant. God will rule whether you obey or not. Consent to be obedient or He will punish you without your consent.”

Richard Baxter
