There are certain thought-patterns that have to be assembled in proper order to make spiritual life a fruit-producing flow rather than a reluctant grind. Here is how this principle of the sequence of spiritual truth perception plays out in a very important example.


Take the very basic demand for the disciples obedience throughout the New Testament. The importance of obedience could hardly be overstated. In spite of the modern attempt to separate the grace of forgiveness received at the beginning of the Christian life from the ongoing grace-empowered obedience in the rest of the Christian life there is simply no such thing as a non-obedient Christian in Biblical revelation. 


But the life of obedience will be hard-won and grudgingly performed until another truth takes hold of the disciple's mind first. Before I lean my will into obedience I should first ask another more important question. Why does God command my life? What is in Father God's heart when He issues commands?
