1 Samuel 15:22
So Samuel said: “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,As in obeying the voice of the Lord?Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,And to heed than the fat of rams.
Obedience to the word of God is a necessity, for it determines if we have truely accepted to follow God or not. It is a measure of our love for God (John 14:15), and our readiness to submit to His will and purpose (John 14:31).
God is not desirous of your fat offerings and gifts (1 Samuel 15:22), but in holding tenaciously to His word, because that is what defines you as a true follower of God (Jeremiah 7:23).
As you step out today, hold on firmly to the word of God, for God is more interested in your obedience, than your sacrifice.
