Trust and Obey
 

The great hymn of the faith, 'Trust and Obey', expresses eloquently how faith and obedience interact in our relationship with Christ. The first verse paints a picture of the blessed life of obedience:

"When we walk with the Lord in the light of his word, what a glory he sheds on our way. While we do his good will he abides with us still, and with all who will trust and obey."

In his great love for us, God has provided everything that we need for life and godliness, (2 Peter 1:3). But, God will not force an unwilling believer to follow his ways. If we choose not to obey his Word, he will allow us to do so, but we will experience consequences from this decision. In contrast, those who choose to trust God and obey him are able to enjoy the sweetness of his constant presence and the sure knowledge of his favor and blessing. Those who walk with the Lord experience joy in their relationship with God. To be clear: obedient believers don't have more of his presence; rather, they are able to enjoy his presence in ways that disobedient believers cannot.

The fourth verse advances the same idea about those who trust God and obey him. It is those who follow God closely who most enjoy his blessing and presence:

"But we never can prove the delights of his love, until all on the altar we lay; for the favor he shows and the joy he bestows are for them who will trust and obey."

We can only fully experience, (prove) God's love for us if we actually trust him. When we surrender to his will, and begin to obey him and follow him closely, the hindrance of disobedient sin is removed. God the Father is a perfect parent. He can shower us with blessings when we are obedient children, but must discipline us for our own good when we are not.

The last verse of the hymn further describes these blessings:

"Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at his feet, or we'll walk by his side in the way; What he says we will do, where he sends we will go - never fear, only trust and obey."

There is nothing more rewarding than experiencing the power of God that obedience to him affords. The Scriptures say that perfect love casts out all fear. When we realize the eternal nature and infinite scope of Christ's love for us, we can serve him boldly, and never fear, only trust and obey.                 Pastor Daniel Rhodes
