Obedience Unto Death by Rita Ford
“Obedience Unto Death” by Rita Ford

The golden rule for understanding spiritually is not intellect, but obedience. If a man wants scientific knowledge, intellectual curiosity is his guide; but if he wants insight into what Jesus Christ teaches, he can only get it by obedience.

A WORD FOR THE DAY


“Instead, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; for it is written, `You shall be holy, for I am holy.'”

-1 Peter 1:15-16

“Continually restate to yourself what the purpose of your life is. The destined end of man is not happiness, nor health, but holiness. . . . The one thing that matters is whether a man will accept the God who will make him holy. At all costs a man must be rightly related to God.”

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. … I have called you friends.

+ John 15:13, 15

If I am a friend of Jesus, I have deliberately and carefully to lay down my life for Him. It is difficult, and thank God it is difficult. Salvation is easy because it costs God so much, but the manifestation of it in my life is difficult. God saves a man and endues him with the Holy Spirit and then says in effect–“Now work it out, be loyal to Me, whilst the nature of things round about you would make you disloyal.” “I have called you friends.” Stand loyal to your Friend, and remember that His honour is at stake in your bodily life.
