Obedience is Not Just the Opposite of Disobedience
Today on Relentless Truth, John continues in Colossians as the Apostle Paul discusses unity, false teaching and how to walk by faith.
▼ Show Notes

We intuitively think sometimes that obedience is the opposite of disobedience. In this episode, we explore the importance of knowledge and suffering in our lives.

Obedience and Knowledge

False teachers of various types, particularly those Paul encountered throughout his ministry, believed that obedience is the opposite of disobedience. In this episode we explore the importance of knowledge, a thorough understanding of our Lord Jesus Christ, intimate knowledge in relationship, in our walk in Christ Jesus.

Suffering and Obedience

Suffering is similarly used by God as we grow in Jesus Christ our Lord. Obedience is not just moving away from disobedience – it is growing in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is growing in yieldedness to God, and this often occurs through suffering. Yes, God uses suffering to grow our obedience to Him.

We explore these counterintuitive truths in this powerful episode of Relentless Truth. My hope is that this will prompt a thorough study of Scripture. May God bless you richly as you contemplate these truths.
