Obedience vs. Significance

Here’s a clip of an article I read a while back. It’s something that I go back to from time to time. It’s always a good reminder.

“Sometimes it can be tempting to strive to do something significant. We find ourselves wanting to write a significant song that will touch many hearts, or lead a significant time of worship in which lives are truly changed. But we are not called to significance. Instead, the calling is to obedience.

Look through the Bible and see how obedience reaps some major significant outcomes. Look at Moses, look at Noah, and look at Paul, for example. Ultimately, look at Jesus, and the cross. The most significant act in all history was one of sheer humble, enduring obedience.

Whether we are called up front, or a little more behind the scenes, obedience is always significant in the eyes of God.”

– Matt Redman
