Humble Obedience

Based on Wednesday night’s sermon:

Obedience -Gryro Shadowplay

Humble Obedience
by Michael Romani

When the going gets tough as it often does
We respond getting caught up in the buzz
When we are faced with the opposition
We tend to fall back into a defensive position

It's part of being an ordinary human being
But Jesus know our best and deeper meaning
Facing betrayal on that final darkening night
Jesus knew what was coming and faced it right

There in the garden he fell down on his face
In prayer, He drank from the cup in full embrace
Drinking down the cup of wrath in a swallow
The pain filled Him though He was ever hallow

A cup of sorrow that would be brutally afflicted
He knew everything as it was just as predicted
Though He could have avoided what He would endure
If He did so, mankind would not have been cured

There in the salvation He offered His surrender
That the will of God be given as so rendered
In this life, there are bigger things than survival
The humility of all shaped as it will be at arrival

It there that despite the surface inconvenience
That we learn to live life in humble obedience
Facing our struggles as God's will demands
We fully submit as God quietly commands
