or a sacrifice of time to a worthy cause

of Inspirational Prayers says:
One morning I was laying in bed.
Suddenly I heard an urgent voice
very clearly say in my head,
I knew God was speaking to me.
my amazement captured my attention
instead of obedience
capturing my attention.
I lay there and just soaked in the beauty of
hearing God's voice more clearly
than I think I had ever heard him before.
I lay there for at least 5 minutes and just pondered the
blessing of hearing God's voice so clearly.
Then I realized that I was not obeying!
God said, "GET UP!"
Then I began to think....
"What if a tree was coming down right on the bed
and I was too busy
enjoying the beauty of God's voice to OBEY?"
No matter why God wanted me to quickly get up,
his words were important for me to obey.
I asked God
to forgive me for not obeying and
I asked God
to help me remember this event
I will be ready to obey quickly the next time
I hear his voice.
for us to do
what we think we should do
God is calling us
to obey him.
Obedience doesn't make God love you more
but it does
your love for God.
If a man loves me,
he will keep my words.
If ye love me,
keep my commandments.

Andrew Murray declares
the very essence of salvation.
Below are quotes about obedience
First Quote beginning with Scripture
If ye keep my commandments,
ye shall abide in my love;
even as I have kept
my Father's commandments,
and abide in his love.”
John 15:10 KJV
Andrew Murray says...
How often and how earnestly
we have asked
to be able to
abide continually in Christ.
We have thought of
more study of the Word,
more communion with God,
and we have overlooked the simple truth
that Jesus teaches so clearly,
‘If ye keep My commandments,
ye shall abide in My love,’
with its divine sanction,
‘Even as I kept My Father’s commandments,
and abide in His love.’
OBEDIENCE: THE VERY ESSENCE OF SALVATION
By Andrew Murray
Here we think
our blessed Lord [Jesus], and
the prominence He gives
as the one thing
for which He was come into the world.
Jesus who entered it with His
‘Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God,’
ever confessed to men,
‘I seek not My own will,
but the will of Him that sent Me.’
Of all He did and of all He suffered,
even to the death,
‘This commandment have I received of My Father.’
If we turn to His teaching,
we find everywhere,
that the obedience He rendered
from everyone who would be His disciple.
During His whole ministry,
from beginning to end,
THE VERY ESSENCE OF SALVATION.
