Bishop Edir Macedo Explains What Real Obedience Is
Adam and Eve were created in the garden of perfection. There was no death, no disease, no lies. There was only purity, holiness, life. God told Adam: “You can eat whatever you want, but there is a tree I don’t want you to eat from: the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat from it, you will die”. Adam and Eve disobeyed the Word of God and then sin came. From this situation, a cruel, evil, and perverse Humanity developed.
However, the Son of God, Jesus, directed all the disgrace of sin on Him and died for all. The problem is, people don’t want to let go of sin. They want to receive God’s blessings, but they want to continue living in sin.
It is necessary to understand that each person’s life depends on who they serve. If he serves sin, he will reap the rewards of it. If he follows the truth, he will reap the fruits of truth. And it is not enough to know the truth, but to obey it, because even demons know the truth, but they follow the lie.
So if you are experiencing problems in your marriage, at home, at work, know that God wants to help you, but He cannot impose His Will. Whoever hears His Voice and obeys it does not get lost in the midst of problems. That is, if you obey it, you will reap the fruits of obedience. But if you disobey it, you will reap the fruits of disobedience. And for that, it doesn’t matter if you are religious, if you go to church, or if you are good.
