Your Obedience Affects Others
by Bishop Keith A. Butler
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
The word manifest means that He will show Himself. He will speak. He will make Himself strong. All these things happen when you get God’s Word. But if you don’t put yourself in position to get the command, then as far as God is concerned, you don’t love Him.
God’s plan for your life is not only for you. You are connected to the lives of others. What would have happened if Billy Graham had failed to obey God’s call? Do you know how many millions have been touched by Billy Graham? I have been to most parts of the world, and people tell me about Billy Graham’s influence-I just heard that on a recent trip to Poland.
I was an eleven-year-old boy sitting in front of the television set watching a Billy Graham crusade. I bowed my head in front of that television when he gave an altar call. Now, I didn’t walk in obedience from that point on, but the truth he preached penetrated my heart. I have never met Billy Graham, but when he gets to heaven he is going to get credit partially for bringing me into the kingdom.
Prayer for Today
Father, how great you are! How worthy of my praise and honor! Thank you for forgiveness, for revelation, and for discernment through your Son and your Spirit. I ask for special blessings for those who told me about you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
