Theme: Fruits of the Spirit

Text: “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.” – Ephesians 6:1-3.

Comment: One of God’s sure promises in the Holy Bible for His children is, obedience, as contained in the text above. The instruction carries the potential of longevity for children who obey their parents; while capital punishment was put in place against children who assault their parents: (Deuteronomy 21:15-17) But the grace brought by Christ has overridden the death penalty. (John 1:17) Since we all are children before God, obedience to the laws of God is a sine qua non for salvation. The Almighty God says: “Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.” – Jeremiah 7:23.
