Ezekiel 33:31 So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain.

There are some believers who go to church week after week, hear the Word of God, but don’t obey. There are other believers who hear the word of God, but pick and choose the things they want to obey. God knows who’s being obedient to His Word and who is not.

It’s important for us to obey the Word of God in its entirety. Our obedience leads to our success (Joshua 1:8). Our obedience shouldn’t be limited to the written Word of God and what comes from the preacher’s sermon. Everything, we know in our hearts that God is telling us to do, we should do. That may include, apologizing to someone even though we may not feel like we’ve done anything wrong, work on a business proposition, or applying for a job we’re not qualified for.

Our obedience doesn’t benefit God. He’ll still be God even if no one obeys. Our obedience benefits us. If we want to reap the maximum benefits of God’s blessings, we must obey. Obey God in word and in action.
