If We Believe, We Obey
By Rev. Ernest O'Neill
The fact is, if you believe you obey and if you don't obey, it's because you haven't believed. Jesus is so strong on it himself, if you look at that famous chapter John 3:36.
"He who believes in the son, has eternal life" and then he just switches the word around as if it's the same word exactly, "He who does not obey the son, shall not see life." You'd expect Jesus to hold to the same word, "He who believes in the son, has eternal life; he who does not believe the son, shall not see life", but Jesus switches the two words “believe” and “obey” as if they're both absolutely synonymous.
