Obedience Trumps Sacrifice

Serious words of God to pay heed to in these days as well. God desires our obedience, more than sacrifices which are for show to others. God’s commands are for our benefit, as well as the benefit of others. We must remember, if we are servants of God, followers of Jesus Christ, if we to not live in obedience, (walk our talk) He will replace us with someone who will.

“Samuel said, “Has the LORD as great a delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices As in obedience to the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed [is better] than the fat of rams. “For rebellion is as [serious as] the sin of divination (fortune-telling), And disobedience is as [serious as] false religion and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, He also has rejected you as king.””

1 SAMUEL 15:22-23 AMP
