He is Greater

He is greater

If I could understand all God's ways and workings, he would be no bigger than my mind and not worth believing in - he certainly would not be God.

When we do not understand but still submit ourselves to the Father's will,l we shall be profoundly aware of His love and know His peace and strength flooding in our lives again.

David Watson, Discipleship

Disobedience - the opposite of faith & believe 
"He who believes in the Son has eternal life; he who DOES NOT OBEY the Son shall not see life but the wrath of God abides in him"
John 3:36

God's righteous judgement will one day come upon those 1. Who do not know God and 2. Who DO NOT OBEY the gospel of our Lord Jesus . 2 Thess 1:8. Read on to verse 9.

So what then establishes our believe - that we may have eternal life? Our obedience . This means carrying out works of faith i.e acts of obedience. It is no use calling out Lord Lord when there is no obedience. Non obedience shows non belief. "Believe" is an active word. Eg. Can we truly say we believe if we act in the manner that shows we do not believe He will take care of us? Can we say we believe when we seek not His kingdom but ours first? Can we say we believe if we sit in our comfort zones and not adhere to the great commission to make disciples?
