S.S.S. Bible Study Obedient and Disobediant
Family School at Faith Baptist Church
Bible Study Obedient vs. Disobedient
Proverbs 13:1 A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.
Obedience is not slavery, it is not negative, it is the way to peace and prosperity under God.
In a house where there is no obedience whether it be children disobeying parents, wives disobeying husbands, or men disobeying God whenever the biblical standard of obedience is absent there is chaos.
Who should we obey?
(Parents, Teachers, Pastors, etc)
Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
The only time it is better to disobey a man with a rightful rule over you, (parent, boss, etc)
What used to happen to disobedient children
Gods promise to the disobedient son.
Proverbs 30:17 The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
By living a lifestyle of disobedience you submit yourself to obey sin, and Satan.
Eve obeyed Satan’s will by disobeying God. Genesis 3
David obeyed Satan’s will by disobeying Gods command not to commit adultery. 2nd Samuel 11
Jonah (Initially) Obeyed Satan’s will by running from God. Jonah 1
Satan’s will is for YOU to disobey! If he can’t get you to disobey God, he will get you to disobey your parents, if he cant get you to disobey your parents he will get you to disobey your boss, pastor, teacher etc. Disobedience is SIN, and its Satan’s will for you to do so, so when you disobey God you obey Satan.
Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
We pretend that disobedience is not a “big sin” God calls us to serve Him and we ignore it and think nothing of it. There isn’t much that’s worse than disobedience, it leads to Hell, by not obeying the urging of the Holy Ghost, it leads to hurt when we disobey our parents, and it leads to separation from fellowship with God by ignoring His word, so is it a light thing?
Obedience in mind not just in outward action and appearance
It is easier to have a disobedient heart than a disobedient mouth.
2nd Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
The promise to those who obey God
Jeremiah 7:23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.
