Summary: It is important to obey God.

  Study Tools

Introduction:

Abraham was a man that obeyed God

When we think of Abraham we think of the father of the Hebrew people

He became the father of that nation because he obeyed God

YOU WILL NOT MAKE IT FAR IN LIFE IF YOU NEVER LEARN OBEDIENCE

Gen. 12:4- Abraham obeyed God and left all he had for a land he knew not of.

Gen. 22:16- Abraham obeyed God by willing his son to be given as a sacrifice on the altar

Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son to obey; what are you willing to sacrifice?

1. Music

2. Friends

3. Places

4. Yourself

God proved to Abraham he would provide a lamb for deliverance, only because he obeyed God.

IF ABRAHAM HAD NOT OBEYED GOD, THERE WOOULD BE NO HEBREW PEOPLE. IF THERE WERE NO HEBREW PEOPLE, THERE WOULD BE NO JEWISH NATION. IF THERE WERE NO JEWISH NATION, THERE WOULD BE NO JESUS CHRIST TO THAT DELIVERED US FROM HELL.

Abraham is recorded in Hebrews 11 because he obeyed God in faith

Not because:

Had money beautiful

Wealthy well known

Sports ability smart

God used him because he obeyed!!

IF ABRAHAM COULD OBEY GOD WITHOUT THE WRITTEN WORD, WHY CAN’T WE OBEY GOD WITH THE WRITTEN WORD?

We have:

1. Christian School

2. Good church

3. Parents that love us

4. Pastor that cares (youth pastor)

Why can’t we obey God? Because we are consumed with ourselves!

That is why:

1. You can not wear the right clothes

2. You don’t listen to right music

3. You don’t go to the right places

WE THINK WE DESERVE WHAT WE HAVE. THE ONLY THING WE DESERVE IS HELL.

WE THINK WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DO WHAT WE WANT. WE ONLY HAVE A RIGHT TO HELL.

WE THINK WE HAVE A RIGH TO REBEL. WE ONLY HAVE A RIGHT TO GO TO HELL.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY PERSON THAT HAS A RIGHT TO DO WHAT HE WANTS BECAUSE HE PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE TO DO IT!!

(You pay the price he did and you can deserve to do what you want.)

How many in this room know that you are saved?

We obey God in faith for salvation, but stop there:

1. Baptism

2. Soul-winning

3. Standards

4. Separation

5. Obeying our parents

6. Faithfulness

THE PROBLEM OF OBEYING GOD FOR MOST PEOPLE IS A SELF-PROBLEM. (I AM THE MOST IMPORTANT)

IT IS HIGH TIME WE START PUTTING GOD FIRST!!

TEENAGERS LIVES ARE SO BACKWARDS

1. NO ABSOLUTES

2. NO DIRECTION

3. NO AUTHORITY

TIME TO START PREACHING THE BIBLE AGAIN

How do you obey God? By obeying his word

John 1:1-“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

Prov. 12:15

15The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

Prov. 3:1

3:1My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

Prov. 3:11

11My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:

Ps 119:9

9Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

Ps 119:9

9Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

Ps 119:11

11Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Ps 119:35

35Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.

Ps 119:80

80Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.
