It’s God’s Responsibility

My wife, Wendy, shared a quote with me awhile back that goes like this, “God can handle the consequences of our obedience.”  I like it, but I think we can go a step further.

Not only can God handle the consequences of our obedience, but God is willing to take responsibility for the consequences of our obedience.  When God gives us a clear command in his Word, he is responsible for what happens when we obey it.

Some people struggle with sharing the gospel because they feel like a failure if the person they’re talking to doesn’t become a follower Jesus.  Whether or not a person enters into a relationship with God isn’t up to us, but we are commanded to tell people how they can experience new life in Jesus Christ!

Maybe you know God wants you to take a step of faith, but you’re afraid the end result might not be favorable for you.  Let him take responsibility for your obedience.  If what you’re doing lines up with a command, or a principle, found in Scripture, he has promised to protect you and provide for your needs.

Just simply obey, and let God be God.
