Imagine you're a blind person. As you can't see a thing, you're a danger to yourself. You grope about in darkness to try to find your way, but it's so difficult. How great would it be to get some help?
A very kind person decides to volunteer herself to help you. From that moment on, this person acts as your guide. She tells you what's before you, keeps you safe, gives you directions. Your life is now tremendously better off because of her, but only if you choose to listen and obey.
For those of us in Christ, we must see obedience in this way. God comes alongside us who are spiritually blind and becomes our guide. If we will live with eyes that see, we must listen to him and obey. Following his instructions will keep us safe, make us effective, and lead us to live our lives to the full.
One day, our eyes will be fully opened and we shall see him face to face. Let us walk in obedience until that day to our good and to the praise of his glory. Amen.
