I would suggest that motivation is the most important factor involved in obedience. Obedience is the first law of heaven. “ Obedience is the first law of heaven, the cornerstone upon which all righteousness and progression rest.
It consists in compliance with divine law, in conformity to the mind and will of Deity, in complete subjection to God and his commands” (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, ). The love of God shed abroad in the heart by the Holy Spirit produces the deepest religious reverence, genuine piety, and cheerful obedience.

This statement concludes the commands and prohibitions of the Holiness Code and affirms that everything commanded in Leviticus Chapters comes directly from Yahweh on Mt. Sinai as transmitted through His covenant mediator Moses.
For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: "Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law." New Living Translation But those who depend on the law to make them right with God are under his curse, for the Scriptures say, “Cursed is everyone who does not observe and.
The “eternal law of God” is derived from the only sovereign God of cre-ation, who has existed from all eternity, and because He is infinitely holy, so also is His law. Furthermore, since He is the authority behind the law, He is the preeminent One who enforces the law and the subsequent effect for not conforming to God’s divine economy.
The substance of his disputation was this: That men enacted laws for themselves, with a view to their own advantage, differing indeed according to their characters, and in the case of the same persons often changed according to the times: but that there was no natural law: that all, both men and other animals, were borne by the guidance of.
B Number It has been narrated on the authority of Hammam b. Munabbih who said: This is one of the traditions narrated by Abu Huraira from the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) who said: People are subservient to the Quraish: the Muslims among them being subservient to the Muslims among them, and the disbelievers among them being subservient to the disbelievers among them.
A second scenario could involve a civil law that confirms the moral teachings of Scripture. For example, a prohibition on murder (Ex. If the civil law is rooted in part of God’s revealed moral law (i.e. “thou shall not murder”) then it is not the human law which binds but the divine law which is.

(21) Law, then, being a plan of living which men have for a certain object laid down for themselves or others, may, as it seems, be divided into human law and Divine law. But both are opposite sides of the same coin. (22) By human law I mean a plan of living which serves only to.

AS there are these three things in the case of man, habits, actions, and passions; habits are the department appropriated by hortatory discourse the guide to piety, which, like the ship's keel, is laid beneath for the building up of faith; in which, rejoicing exceedingly, and abjuring our old opinions.
Book I, he offers a sweeping overview of his theology of law, law being that order and measure by which God gov-erns the universe and by which all creatures, and humans above all, conduct their lives and affairs.
In an age when Scripture has come under attack, so that the seriousness of one’s commitment to the Christian faith is often simply. IV. FOURTH DISCOURSE: Even though there are many futile aspects to life from a natural viewpoint, a divine viewpoint enables one to enjoy life, to prefer it to death, to use it for the benefit of others, and to live with a fear of God and in obedience to His word knowing that there will be a future judgment A.

The cloister monks, bound by the divine law of work in the discharge of their duties, fly idleness, the enemy, the ancients tell us, of the soul.
Humbly, therefore, and with alacrity they carry out all the tasks that a poor and solitary life demands, but in such a way that everything is ordered to that ministry of divine contemplation to which. Paul had ever exalted the divine law.
He had shown that in the law there is no power to save men from the penalty of disobedience. Wrongdoers must repent of their sins and humble themselves before God, whose just wrath they have incurred by breaking His law, and they must also exercise faith in the blood of Christ as their only means of pardon.
For he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. — Here love is urged, on the ground that it is fulfillment of the law in all its precepts. The whole law is grounded on love to God and love to man. This cannot be violated without the breach of law; and if there is love, it will influence to the observance of all.
One must keep the whole law in order to be justified, but flawless obedience is impossible. [Romans –] Romans – also is in agreement with this interpretation. Paul does not specifically argue that one must obey the law perfectly, but he does emphasize that righteousness cannot come via observance of the law since all people sin.
But the Word of God is the superior above all, He who is loudly proclaimed in the law: "Hear, O Israel, the LORD thy God is one God;" and, "Thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart;" and, "Him shall thou adore, and Him alone shall thou serve."(3) Then in the Gospel, casting down the apostasy by means of these expressions, He did both.
Tell them that I promise to assist at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation all those who, in order to make reparation to me, on the First Saturday of five successive months, go to confession, receive Holy Communion, say five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for a quarter of an hour, meditating on the fifteen.
The love of God, and the love of man; the former producing all obedience to the Divine will; the latter, every act of benevolence to one's fellows. The love of God shed abroad in the heart by the Holy Spirit produces the deepest religious reverence, genuine piety, and cheerful obedience.

Featuring a special chapter from bestselling author Robert Henderson, this fresh teaching includes 18 powerful activation prayers for issuing divine restraining orders against spiritual attacks, abuse, witchcraft, the spirit of poverty, premature death, and more.
We all know that order takes work. Ask any mom how hard it is to keep an orderly household. Ask any shop owner how tough it is to keep worker’s tools put in the right bins. Order is not the natural state of the fallen world. In fact, left to themselves, things fall apart and become disorderly. Some people have a knack for disorder.
BEFORE entering upon the present chapter I must remind the reader of what I have more than once observed in this book. The political Constitution of the United States appears to me to be one of the forms of government that a democracy may adopt; but I do not regard the American Constitution as the best, or as the only one, that a democratic people may establish.

Obedience to the will of the Father, yielding the fruits of the spirit in one's personal life, is the law of the kingdom. ~ The Urantia Book, Faith and The Fruits of the Spirit Belief may not be able to resist doubt and withstand fear, but faith is always triumphant over doubting, for faith is both positive and living.
You must not take offense, for the Book of Mormon clearly teaches us that only the wicked take the truth to be hard (1 Nephi ). You have stated that love is the first law of heaven, but this is not so.
We know from modern-day revelation that obedience is actually the first law of heaven.”. The cross was cursed not only in the opinion of men, but by the enactment of the Divine Law. Hence Christ, while suspended on it, subjects himself to the curse. And thus it behoved to be done, in order that the whole curse, which on account of our iniquities awaited us, or rather lay upon us, might be taken from us by being transferred to him.
At all times and in all places He manifested a loving interest in men, and shed about Him the light of a cheerful piety. All this was a rebuke to the Pharisees. It showed that religion does not consist in selfishness, and that their morbid devotion to personal interest was far from being true godliness.
CHAPTER 4. HENRY DAVID THOREAU. Henry David Thoreau ( ) was one of the great U.S. writers of the 19 th century and perhaps the greatest of all U.S.
nature writers. He is best known as the man who fled from civilization to live alone, with nature, at Walden Pond. As the legislature depends upon learned men, 'Abdu'l-Bahá spent the greater part of His book describing the learned man.
So this book will surely be one of those we shall turn to when it comes to the setting up of Bahá'í universities for the training of future leaders of society - the members of "assemblies of consultation.".
The book of Moses may be divided into two major sections: Moses 1, which relates experiences from Moses’ life that are not found in the book of Genesis, and Moses 2–8, which contains the inspired and restored account of events described in the Bible, including the Creation of the earth; the Fall of Adam and Eve; the story of Cain and Abel.

Obedience does not mean the execution of orders that are given by a drill sergeant. It springs, rather, from the love of an order, and love of Him Who gave it. The merit of obedience is less in the act than in the love; the submission, the devotion, and the service that obedience implies are not born of servitude but are rather effects that.
The divine law. The civil law. The law of opinion or reputation, if I may so call it. By the relation they bear to the first of these, men judge whether their actions are sins or duties ; by the second, whether they be criminal or innocent ; and by the third, whether they be virtues or vices.
Divine law the measure of sin and duty. Satan strives to turn men from their allegiance to God, and from rendering obedience to His law; therefore he directs his efforts especially against that commandment which points to God as the Creator.
GC Protestants now urge that the resurrection of Christ on Sunday made it the Christian Sabbath. But Scripture evidence is lacking. Away, then, with all the absurd trifling which many have indulged in with regard to preparation.
Although believers sometimes ask to have their heart trained to the obedience of the divine law, as David does in several passages, it is to be observed, that even this longing in prayer is from God.
This is apparent from the language used. 3. A THIRD fubordinate right of every Englifhman is that of applying to the courts of juftice for redrefs of injuries. Since the law is in England the fupreme arbiter of every man's life, liberty, and property, courts of juftice muft at all times be open to the fubject, and the law be duly adminiftred therein.The first objective of this book is to remind all Christian workers of the greatness and the glory of the work in which God gives a share.
As we see that it is God’s own work that we have to work out, and that in our working, His glory rests on us and we glorify Him, then we shall count it our joy to live only and wholly for His work.The individual believer will reach the individual sinner. We shall all kindle our tapers from the divine altar.
All have a lamp, and that lamp, filled with the golden oil received from the heavenly witnesses standing before the throne of God, will shed the most precious, strong, pure.
