“By faith Abraham obeyed …” Hebrews 11:8a.
The word translated “obey” is the Greek word “hupakouo”, which literally means to “hear under”. It refers to listening to one under whose authority you submit. Biblically, you can’t believe without obeying! Your best portrait of faith is reflected by your most recent act of obedience. Yet usually, we think of faith as something that helps us get stuff from God. Seldom do we realise that faith compels us to obey God as He instructs us through the written & rhema word. Today I urge you to obey (believe) God in your conduct, decisions, giving, stewardship, worship, relationships, ministry & career among other key areas.
