Better Than Sacrifice

Re: Verse reading–1 Samuel 15:1-35 (day four)  1 Samuel 15 gives us clear instruction about obedience.  God expects full and complete obedience…it is more important than any sacrifice we can make.  As believers, God expects our obedience.  We cannot say we are followers of Christ and there not be a difference in our life as a result.  Just like an athlete pushes his limit to be the very best he can be, we should push ourselves to excel in our obedience…excel in our witness… excel in our prayer…excel in our bible knowledge…and excel in our service.  1 Corinthians 9:24-25 says, “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize?  Run in such a way that you may win.  Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things.  They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.”  Are you disciplining your life to be obedient in all that God has commanded you to do?
