What you follow is what you hallow, To follow is to take the same route behind another person; take the same course or go in the same direction as something else. It also to watch, observe, or pay close attention to somebody or something. It also means acting in accordance with, or imitate something, especially, with instructions or direction given by somebody else.
A. REWARDS FOR FOLLOWING HIM (Leviticus 26:3-13 )
If you follow my decree and careful to obey My commands. In God’s clear instruction to the people on what becomes of the obedient and disobedient man differently, we see an unmistakable call to follow His ways.
He has repeatedly warned them against idolatry as a jealous God. If they should not follow other gods, the implication is that they must follow Him alone – no divided loyalty.
Everything that relates to God must always make sense to us without compromise. You want to always be around the one you love and want to follow. If Christ is your master, you must desire Him wholeheartedly.
As part of the blessings of obedience, God will work among us as our God. He will relate with us, He will lead us, and we must follow Him. Always remembering who He is and what He is capable of doing.
God has never missed words concerning the indispensability of total obedience to His commands as well as the rewards that would follow it. God is faithful. Whatever you sow you shall reap. (Galatians 6:7 )
B. CONSEQUENCES OF DISOBEYING HIM ( Leviticus 26: 14-39 )
“But if you will not listen to me and carry out all these commands, Then I will do this to you. (verse 15-
No one keeps disobeying his master and still expects to be enjoying his master favour. (Romans 6:1-2)
Failing to follow God’s word and way can never please Him. The wages of sin is death and destruction. Examine the gravity of the consequences of disobedience highlighted in verse 16-39, and discover how God takes
deviation from His Law very seriously.
The only way out of God’s wrath is repentance. To regain God’s favour and attention in relationship with Him we must terrace our steps back to Him in repentance. It is then He would remember His covenant with us and restore us fully.
You can not bribe God. Only total obedience to Him can save you from His unbearable judgment. Do not wait to experience King Saul’s fate that was borne out of his disobedient disposition. When we listen and are obedient to His decrees, our lives will be in His true prosperity.
When we refuse to follow God we invite God-monitored calamities and troubles on ourselves.
May God bless you all in Jesus Name.
