Obedience: Obedience frees us from slavery to our fallen nature. Obedience means simply to submit your will to the will of another. You are a wise and obedient man when you have a listening heart. The world is cluttered with choices. Many are offered to you through provocative means intended to convince you this is the best choice for you. Listen for God’s voice and obey what He asks of you and you will find the Lord. If you submit to the will of the Lord and not your own will, then you will go in the right direction. Consider Jesus’ obedience, in the Garden of Gethsemane when He asked the Father to take the cup of suffering and pain of His passion and death but is ready to gladly accept the cup if it is His Father’s will. Jesus’ obedience overturns the disobedience of Adam and Eve, which brought about all of the pain and suffering into the world. Obedience requires patience and humility and leads, ultimately, to satisfaction and freedom
