And He sent out two of His disciples and said to them, “Go into the city. . .”        Mark 14:13

The two disciples were given very detailed instructions to go to a certain town and look for a particular man performing a specific task. He would have a large room, furnished and ready to observe the Passover. These instructions might have seemed unusual had it not been their Lord speaking, but the two disciples obeyed and found everything just as Jesus had said. Jesus knew exactly what they would find, and so He guided them specifically. One of the most memorable and precious times the disciples would spend with their Teacher hinged on the obedience of these two.

Obedience to Christ’s commands always brings fulfillment. When the Lord gives you instructions, obey immediately. Don’t wait until you have figured it all out and everything makes perfect sense to you. Sometimes God will lead you to do things that you will not fully understand until after you have done them. He does not usually reveal all the details of His will when He first speaks to you. Instead, He tells you enough so you can implement what He has said, but He withholds enough information so that you must continue to rely upon His guidance. Your response will affect what God does next in your life. Your obedience may affect how others around you experience Christ as well. If there is any directive God has given you that you have not obeyed, obey that word immediately and watch God’s perfect plan unfold in your life.

    Thanking you for these timely words from our Lord. I pray to be as obedient. “Go into the city…”. What if they didn’t go?

    I really appreciate this devotional and thank the writers Henry & Richard Blackaby for their obedience.

    In Christ, Deborah

    Yes, we need to obey JESUS immediately, and not ask questions, or try to figure out things.

    Without FAITH, it is impossible to please GOD!

    So when we obey immediately it pleases GOD.

    I want my obedience to affect people around me to experience GOD in a powerful and positive way.

    Hopefully, they will copy and imitate me into obeying GOD right away, since now they have an example from watching me.
