"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship." - Romans 12:1
Why do we have such a hard time following God's instructions? We never have a hard time following the instructions of other hero's, such as firemen. When you're trapped inside a building that is burning to the ground, you won't think twice about what the fireman instructed you to do, you'll just simply do it. Why can't we be that way with God? I mean, isn't He also trying to save you from a fire? Not just the "fires" and the pains throughout your life, but more so - the everlasting pit of flames, misery, doom, disease, pain, and oh - so much more. Yet we can't listen? We can't follow His instructions? How crazy is that? When God gives you instructions don't walk half way to Him on water and then start doubting. Walk the full distance, trusting wholeheartedly! We need to follow all the commandments that God has given us, without questioning. "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." - Proverbs 3:5. When your Creator reaches out His hand to pull you out of any "hell" that you're in or may face, don't even think once before grabbing it, and NEVER let go. If you want opportunities in your life then start following in obedience to God's commandments. "Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” - John 14:21.
