Where does Christian obedience come from?

Obedience to God is the “outflow of Calvary” in the heart and soul of a believer in Christ. Obedience is man’s subjection of will to the Savior and Redeemer which is the one who forgave all of man’s past sins, and removed all guilt from the conscience of a believer. Subjection is an act of man’s faith; obedience to God is the outflow of this action. The language of the Bible teaches in the Greek text that obedience “springs” from faith…Romans 1:5. You show me a man that truly believes… I’ll show you a man that’s obedient to God! Glory!

Man is born with a heart of disobedience to God. Man is unrighteous by nature. Man is in natural rebellion to Christ and the truth of God’s Word… from birth.

The power to “do right” is a God given power to man from God. This power is simply the power of God’s amazing Grace. It’s the power of God granted to man “when” man believes and trusts in Christ alone for personal forgiveness. God’s power flows from Calvary and is granted to the heart of man through belief. Belief causes man to act. The action of a believer in Christ is to do right. Righteousness is a gift of God’s Grace. Righteousness produces obedience to God. The Bible teaches that man believeth unto righteousness.

Romans 10:10…with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.

    The love of God constrains us to be obedient to Him. Praise The Lord, not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit. Thanks Pastor Rick.
