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.
"Conventional wisdom in this pragmatic age of ours insists that it's always easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission. Scripture says almost the exact opposite: "To obey is better than sacrifice" (1 Sam. 15:22). David Hegg has written this very helpful book to show why obedience to God is always the best of all our choices. Carefully, skillfully tracing the theme through several passages of Scripture, he shows why obedience is not merely our duty; it can also be our delight. Easy to read and yet thought provoking, this is a fine book on a supremely important topic."
"Written by a veteran pastor, this well-informed book encourages and challenges us to think about crucial truths at the intersection of faith and practice."
Written in a personal style, the reader will gain good lessons on how to obey God through His Word. Especially valuable for new believers and those seeking a basic primer on the basics of sanctification.
"The greatest gift David has given us in The Obedience Option is to proclaim the truth that the only way to overcome a passion for sin is with an overwhelming passion for righteousness and help us develop that passion. David's writings are especially credible to me, because I know David and his passion for righteousness does drive his personal life."
"In The Obedience Option, David Hegg has given us a very helpful manual on biblical sanctification. The real challenge of holiness amidst this wicked world is here addressed admirably, providing the Christian with solid direction, wise counsel, and encouraging hope. If you're looking for a clear answer as to why you sin and yet why you should vigorously resist it, this book is for you! Read it with much spiritual profit. You'll be glad you did."
"Sin is serious. But you can forsake it. Let David Hegg show you why obeying God is better by far than indulging the flesh."
"In The Obedience Option, David Hegg not only challenges the reader to obedience, but he motivates me to pursue a life of obedience, and provides me a roadmap explaining how I can grow in obedience from a right motive. David shows me how obedience springs from faith, and further instructs me regarding how to grow my faith so that it becomes an effective shield against the fiery darts of temptation. Many books on sanctification discuss what it is, and why it's important, but this book provides practical advice showing a biblical path to an obedience that is better by far than any other alternative. I commend The Obedience Option for your reading and application."
