Trust and Obey

Quick thought that Jim Wilson shared with me after Soma last Tuesday:

"'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.'" Matthew 28:18-20

We're not to teach commands; we're to teach obedience to his commands.

We're to teach and practice loving Jesus--which is obedience! (John 14:23--"Jesus replied, 'If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching.'")
