Obedience is better than sacrifice...
I know this. I've preached this. And yet I find myself disobeying and running smack into rebellion. And Pastor Mike shared this in our meeting this evening - that rebellion on my part results in a burden on his part, and really does damage to the joy of this ministry. Dang.
How many of us would continue to sin if we understood deeply how our actions and lack of godliness really effects the people we love? Dang again.
The advantage of joy comes in my obedience, to God and to the man of God I've place myself under... dang.
