Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 138

138. “If you hold to my teaching, you are really My disciples” (John 8:31).

If there is a God, how could we ignore what He says? Wouldn’t such a careless decision prove dangerous or even fatal? That’s why Jesus connects belief to obedience. If we believe He is the Son of God, we would be unable to disregard His teaching. We would commit ourselves to His greater purpose. Obedience would be the logical decision of those who know who He is. Sadly, many believe He is God, but they don’t obey because their belief is self-focused. They want Heaven, but want to ignore the commands of Christ in how they live. But if He is God, what kind of a strategy is that?
