This song reflects the need to be more like Jesus. God has a specific plan and purpose for our lives and one of the requirements in order to be effective and annointed servants of his is to be holy, humble and obedient. Many people tell me that they do not have any problem with the holy and humble part, but when it comes to obedience it becomes very hard for them to act upon it. God does not want delayed obedience, "who knows", "maybe" or "half obedience", but he honors absolute and immediate obedience. Whatever you feel he asking of you, do it! He has a reason for it and it is for your good and for his glory. Even when we do not understand the ultimate goal, the bible says "Obedience is better than sacrifice". No matter how much we think we do for God, no matter how much we claim we love him, when obedience is not present that means we are not in complete agreement with him. Holy, Humble, & Obedient are not popular terms in our society today. We are taught to be immoral, proud and independent. We are told to go with the flow and fit in, but God says: we are not of this world, do not be conformed to this world but be transfornmed by the power of his Holy Spirit. We need to be the salt and light, we need to impact others, we need to reflect who we are in Christ. Our identity is to be shown wherever we are and in whatever we do. We are his ambassadors and children. We are called to be a light in a world of darkness. My prayer for you today is that you will not resist the voice of God any longer and say "yes" when he calls. He is faithful and will be with you until the very end. Let's make a change in our families, communities and country by being all we were created to be: Holy, Humble, & Obedient.
