If

...anyone loves Me.
he WILL keep My Word;
and My Father will love him,
and We will come to him
and make Our home with him.

John 14:23

When you do what He tells you to do, no matter how insensible it may seem, God accomplishes what He purposed through you...
Obedience is costly, yet it is always worth the cost. In fact, whenever you are tempted to consider the cost too high, you need to consider what it will cost you not to do the will of God. That cost is even greater.

What an absolutely good reminder! It's can be easy to lose sight of eternity and focus on the temporal.
Thanks for that uplifting word!

very true!
i sometimes struggle with being obedient and doing His will and not mine and the cost of being obedient to MY will is much higher.

WOW! That is so gripping! "In fact, whenever you are tempted to consider the cost too high, you need to consider what it will cost you not to do the will of God. That cost is even greater." Oh, to live with that perspective!
