4. A Lifestyle of Obedience
What I’m talking about is obedience to God and His word.
In John 14:15 Jesus says if you love me you will keep my commandments. It’s a comment about fruit similar to saying if your healthy you will have a temperature of 98.6 degrees. John 14:15 is talking about obeying the the Word. those things that are known, written down.
In John 15:14 Jesus says you are my friends if you do whatever I command you. He is referring to hearing His voice. Do what I tell you to do.
If we are going to be effective in ministry of any kind we must have a lifestyle of obedience both to His Word and to His voice.
