Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe.

Doing exactly as the Lord commands, doing happily.

Action is the key, do it immediately, joy you will receive.

Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe.


You spell it … O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E.

Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe.


If you want to live pure, if you want to live clean, and you want to do your best, you must sweetly submit to authority, leaving to God the rest.

Walking in the light, keeps your attitude right, on the narrow way.

For if you believe the Word you receive, you always must obey.


You spell it … O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E.

Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe.



The Above lesson was written by Tommy Dowling

a Sunday School Teacher for over 40 years.


If God has spoken to your heart after reading the sermon "An Excellent Marriage Cannot Exist Without An Excellent Wife" right now talk to God about what He has spoken to you.


Do you have the assurance that one day you will go to heaven? If you have no assurance that you know Jesus Christ, then I trust you will decide to accept Him as your personal Savior. The Bible tells us in


Acts 16:31, “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…”

Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”


This prayer is here for those who need to ask Jesus to be their personal Savior: “I do want to go to Heaven. I know I am a sinner, and I do believe Jesus Christ died for me. I realize I cannot buy this great salvation, nor can I earn it. Knowing Jesus died on the cross and arose from the grave to pay my sin debt and to purchase my salvation, I do now trust Him as my Savior, and from this moment on I am completely depending on Him for my salvation.”


If you made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, please let me know. Please send an e-mail to and I will send you some literature that will help you in your Christian life.
