Sanctified For Obedience

I Peter 1:1-2 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To God's elect, strangers in the world, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia,  (2)  who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance. 

We have been and are being sanctified for obedience to Jesus Christ.  As a matter of fact, there can truly be no sanctification without obedience.  John 14:21a reminds us that whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. 

It’s been said that He who believes obeys, and he who obeys believes. 

May we be obedient servants of our Lord. 

Where our Captain bids us go, 'tis not ours to murmur no; He that gives the sword and shield chooses too the battlefield where we are to fight the foe.
