Obedience Is Better Than Sacrifice
1 Samuel 15:22 (New Living Translation).22 But Samuel replied, "What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Obedience is far better than sacrifice. Listening to him is much better than offering the fat of rams
Obedience is the key, we need to worship and experience the love of the Father, and the fellowship of Holy Spirit and although we think worship as being the most important in our devotion to the Lord. We bring Him the sacrifice of praise and worship to show Him we love Him. Jesus himself declared in John 14:15"If you love Me, keep My commandments".
We need to carry ourselves with an obedient mind set, learn to obey God quickly. It starts the moment we wake up. Even the prophet Samuel knew how important obedience was. From the time he was a young boy he learned "Speak Lord for your servant is listening." How we could learn from this attitude of expectation. Expect God to lead you on the inside, follow your heart (spirit). When the Lord prompts you to do something step out in faith.
