Bible Study Summary: Submission to these commands always results in happiness finding us: Numbers 23:19


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

Doing exactly as the Lord commands, and doing it happily.

If you want to live pure, if you want to live clean,

if you want to do your best, you must sweetly submit to authority, leaving to God the rest.

Walking in the light, keeping your attitude right,

on the narrow way.

For if we believe the Word we receive we always will obey. Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe.
