1. Obedience leads to honor.
"Nothing is really lost by a life of sacrifice; everything is lost by a failure to obey God's call." Henry Parry Liddon
"Greatness in the kingdom of God is measured in terms of obedience." John Stott
2. Obedience leads to blessing.
"Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." 1 Corinthians 15:58
"You will be a blessing...and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." Genesis 12:2-3
3. Obedience leads to joy.
"If you obey my commands you will remain in my love just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete." John 15:10-11
Sometimes the Lord asks us to do things that seem impossible. Be confident that with the Lord all things are possible. Obey him! A miracle is ready to happen in your life! Obey him! Your breakthrough is on the other side of your obedience!
