Peter introduces a vital aspect of spending time with the Lord in God’s Word. “Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love” (1 Peter 1:22). James confirms the principle of obedience when he says, “be doers of the word, and not hearers only…a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing” (James 1:22, 25). We must understand from both Scriptures that there are direct results from our obedience to the Word. Without obedience our quiet time descends into a ritual and we ignore the Holy Spirit’s presence and work in us.
I want to encourage you in this very important habit. Take it on as a delight of the heart and benefit from a closer walk with the Lord.
