Experiencing the fullness of life, joy, peace and happiness is an outgrowth of two things: trusting God and obeying His Word!
Obedience to God’s Word is what He desires and as His children it is the least of what we owe. If you truly trust God as your Lord and Savior, you will willingly and joyfully have no problem with adherence to His Word and trusting that no matter what the world advises you to do, you will put your trust in God!
The world, friends, family and even your parents or so-called “believers” will lead you astray or try to convince you that you can knowingly disobey scripture then fast and pray and ask for God’s forgiveness or do some Hail Mary’s if you are Catholic and increase your tithes or offerings and God will overlook your conscience decision to sin. But here is the truth… He does not!
If we persist in flagrant sin, God will bring His escalating discipline into the life of the believer with the result that he/she may suffer greatly and even die. But their soul will still be saved.
Everything God asks of us, He does so to give something good to us and keep some harm from us. Therefore, the shortest distance between us and the life we long for is total obedience to God.
The bottom line is “trust.” If we truly trust God… if we trust His character and His plan for us… if we accept that God is who He says He is… we will be “obedient from the heart” to whatever He asks of us (Romans 6:17).

Boy do I agree with this.
Obedience is a part of worship and we are all to worship Jesus. Joseph- Anthony: Green
