We bristle at bosses.
We want to be in charge of us.
Yet, on the battlefield, we must be prepared to do whatever we’re told, even if we don’t understand.
We may not have all the information. Our commanding officer may be holding reports we haven’t seen.
God is our commanding officer, and he has issued 5 commands we’ll be glad we followed.
Matthew 6:24 tells us to quit trying to serve two masters.
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
God will direct us down the true path. All other paths are deadly.
Deuteronomy 6:5 says we can’t hold anything back.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”
Anything we choose to keep from God will become a blister in our shoe, and we’ll fall along the way, never to catch up again.
Matthew 22:39 tells us that the way we treat people is important.
“And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Every person we meet during the day is as important as we are. We must treat them with dignity and respect.
1 Corinthians 10:31 says our actions must continually reflect the majesty of God.
“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
If people cannot see God in us, they will have no motivation to accept Christ as their Savior.
Isaiah 43:5 tells us we don’t have to be afraid.
“Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you.”
Jesus will always be with us. He will be at our side. When we choose to chuck fear out the window, Jesus will give us rest.
We are in a battle between good and evil, between heaven and earth. God is our shield, and he will watch over us in every situation.
Let’s turn to God and trust what he says.
