Deliberately Choosing to Obey
Sunday, June 20, 2021
According to Scripture our bodies have been bought with a price and they are no longer ours. Technically speaking, they belong to Jesus Christ. But many of us still attempt to live as if this is our life, our talents, our time, and our prerogative. The story of Jonathan in the Old Testament demonstrates this same tension of ownership and right. For Jonathan is the heir apparent to the throne of Saul. But God has rejected Saul and given his throne to a “Better Man”. Will Jonathan try and hold on to his father’s throne or will he yield it to the one who rightfully deserves it? This is the question being asked of each of us.
