Called to Obedience

Sometimes it can be tempting to strive to do something significant. As a Creative I find myself wanting to write a significant song that will touch many hearts or lead a significant time of worship in which lives are truly changed. But I’ve come to realize, we are not called to significance. Instead, the calling is to obedience. Look through the bible and see how obedience reaps some major, significant outcomes. Look at Moses or Noah for example. Ultimately, look at Jesus and the Cross. The most significant act in all of history was one of sheer, humble, enduring obedience.

Whether we’re called to be up in front or behind the scenes, obedience is always significant in the eyes of God.
