The Power of an Obedient Act

January 31st, 2010 No comments

I was recently with Pastor Keith Tucci, the Pastor of Living Hope Church in Ligonier, PA and part of the Network of Related Pastors, a group to which I belong. He shared a powerful message from Hebrews 7:1-10. I was especially impacted by verses 9 and 10 which read:

“Even Levi, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, so to speak, for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizadek met him.”

Here’s the short version. Levi wasn’t born for another four hundred years or so, yet, from God’s viewpoint, he was present in the loins of his spiritual father Abraham. Abraham’s powerful act of obedience was still bringing God’s blessing to those four hundred years down stream!

Pastor Keith admonished: “Don’t discount your outrageous acts of obedience!”

What you and I do today has an impact on our seed. A heroic act of radical obedience can bring the Lord’s blessing on your great, great, grandchildren! SELAH – pause and let that sink in. The opposite is also true. Our outrageous acts of disobedience have devastating impact on the destiny of our descendants.

The bottom line is this -¬†our choices matter. Let’s CHOOSE LIFE today! Be radically obedient to God. Your great grandkids will thank you.

PS – Pastor Keith Tucci will be ministering at Living Stones Crown Point on Sunday, March 14 for both the 8 & 11 o’clock services and at our Men’ s Network Meeting on Monday, March 15 @ 7pm. Mark your calendars!
