Obedience and Sacrifice

And Shemu'el said, Has Yahuah as great delight in ascending smoke offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of Yahuah? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the Word of Yahuah, he has also rejected you from being king. SHEMU'EL RI'SHON 15:22-23 את CEPHER


Sometimes Yahuah gives us instructions. We set out to follow those instructions but we see something in the process that seems good. We then try to do both. We try to follow Yahuahs instructions while at the same time we try to do that thing that we think is good. That thing that we think is good might actually be good but it is just not good right now or it can be bad. When we try to do our own will when we are supposed to be doing Yahuahs will, we are making ourselves into an idol. We are putting another elohim before Yahuah. When we do this we are not loving Yahuah. The scriptures say "If ye love me, guard my commandments. YOCHANON 14:15-15 את CEPHER


When we obey Yahuah and die to our flesh then we are submitting ourselves as a living sacrifice kodesh and acceptable unto Yahuah. That is our reasonable service.


I BESEECH you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of Elohiym, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto Elohiym, which is your reasonable service. ROMAIYM 12:1-1 את CEPHER
