    Obedience quotes by:    

God's ways will frequently baffle us but God's will is sufficiently clear to lead us in the meantime. God's ways may not be clear but our way is - at least enough of it to know what obedience requires.

    Author: Dale Ralph Davis

Yahweh's will must be achieved in Yahweh's way; the end that God has ordained must be reached by the means that God approves.

We shall know nothing about beauty of walk till we come to compare our walk with the walk of Christ on earth.

    Author: G.V. Wigram

You could never tell what Christ would have you to be about, but if you go with Him in everything, there will be consistency with the ways of Christ. If you go with self, you will find a stop.

    Author: G.V. Wigram

Abide in Me says Jesus. Cling to Me. Stick fast to Me. Live the life of close and intimate communion with Me. Get nearer to Me. Roll every burden on Me. Cast your whole weight on Me. Never let go your hold on Me for a moment. Be, as it were, rooted and planted in Me. Do this and I will never fail you. I will ever abide in you.

    Author: J.C. Ryle

Obedience is the only reality. It is faith visible, faith acting, and faith manifest. It is the test of real discipleship among the Lord's people.

Children, obey. Why does the apostle use the word obey instead of honor, which has a greater extent of meaning? It is because obedience is the evidence of that honor which children owe to their parents, and is therefore more earnestly enforced.

    Author: John Calvin

Lawful worship consists in obedience alone.

    Author: John Calvin

The words of St. Paul, 'No man can call Jesus Lord, but by the Holy Ghost,' show us the necessity of eyeing God in our good works, and even in our minutest thoughts; knowing that none are pleasing to him, but those which he forms in us and with us. From hence we learn that we cannot serve him, unless he use our tongue, hands, and heart, to do by himself and his Spirit whatever he would have us to do.

    Author: John Wesley

If we were not utterly impotent, our good works would be our own property; whereas now they belong wholly to God, because they proceed from him and his grace: While raising our works, and making them all divine, he honours himself in us through them.

    Author: John Wesley

He has told us to pray, 'Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven' (Matthew 6:10). And if we have ever prayed that prayer and meant it--even once--we have ourselves shut the door on thousands of things for which we might foolishly ask.

You must not think that the Lord must work harder to use people in little known places. You must not say, "Well, yes, I guess God could figure out a way to use even me where I am." "Aim at My glory," the Lord says, "and I am using you. Aim to please Me, and you are My minister, right where you are, in whatever you are doing!"
