At the Lord's Command

Would it not be true for us who follow and love the Lord to say that we are at His command? And if He instructs us to do something, that we will do it? I have been pondering this today and would like some help on this topic.

    Calling Jesus "Lord" gives Him a title. It is doing what He says that makes Him the Lord of your life. In theory, that should be easy, but in practice I find that we are not robots and I don't always want to do what He wants. That is called: "Rebellion." I end up doing the best that I can manage for that day...  :)

      So, what you are saying is that we have to try to find a happy medium?

      Tyler, just as a clarification, when you say "happy medium", I think that kind of implies an intentional goal of falling short. I'm not saying you are trying to say that, just commenting for future readers :). I think the goal is always to aim...  more

    Hi Tyler! Sure, if we call Him Lord with deed and not just word, we are to follow His commands. He knows we are not perfect, that we don't always hear clearly, etc., but as far as intent and with our efforts, yes :). Is there a context in which you are thinking that might not be the case?
