Matthew 2:21 – Instant and Complete Obedience

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.

Context:  Matthew 2:19b-20 “…(A)n angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child’s life are dead.”

Matthew 2:21 “So he got up, took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel.”

Observation:  The command was “Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel.”  Joseph’s immediate response was complete obedience.  “He got up, took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel.”

Application:  Lord, I want to completely and instantly obey anything You lead me to do today.

Are you living a life of instant and complete obedience?
