What does it mean to be obedient to God?
According to the writer of Hebrews, obedience equals belief.
And disobedience equals unbelief.
To illustrate this, he points to the Israelites who disobeyed God and failed to enter the promised land.
He wrote, “they were unable to enter because of unbelief.”
Instead they died in the desert.
They disobeyed because they did not believe His message.
But you have.
You believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose again that you might have life.
You received his grace through faith.
Of you, Paul wrote, you are obedient from the heart.
Because at new birth, God gave you a new heart, a heart that believes and trusts him.
So trust him, and obedience will follow.
