Action: Obey

READ: “You have purified your souls by obeying the truth” 1 Pet 1.22.

THINK: Obeying the truth is the same as obeying the Lord Jesus, Mt 7.21. This truth is revealed in Scripture. Obedience purifies the soul from sin, which means redemption, Eph 1.7. Eternal salvation is for those who obey Jesus, Heb 5.9. Faith without obedience is useless for justification, Jas 2.14-26.

ACT: Accept no excuse in an attempt to avoid obedience.

PRAY: Lord God, I want to be an obedient son in all things.

ASK: Did I do what was necessary to become a Christian? Am I doing today what is necessary in order to be faithful?
