The Obedience Option
guides Christ followers through the book of Ephesians in the pursuit of an "overwhelming faith"-a life-dominating conviction that all God has for us through obedience is better by far than anything Satan can offer through selfishness and sin. A passion for righteousness overwhelms other passions. Righteous living becomes our joy and God's purposes are achieved in our lives. Christ is displayed consistently and conspicuously to a world in need.
Like Christians today, the church in Ephesus was greatly in need of clarity when it came to living in a way that was consistent with the commands of Christ. The message of God's eternal Word is as relevant today as it was then.
Do you ever wonder why you keep doing things you know you shouldn't? Does life sometimes feel like one constant battle between what you know you should do and what you actually end up doing? The Obedience Option directs us to Paul's letter to the Ephesians to discover an overwhelming faith - a life dominating conviction that what God has for us through obedience is vastly better than anything this world has to offer. In this state a passion for God and his ways overwhelms everything else. Following God's commands becomes our joy and our lives become a consistent witness to Christ in a world that so desperately needs him.
