Obedience

One of my favourite all time quotes was spoken by Elizabeth Elliot, wife of Jim Elliot, the missionary who went to the Amazon.  I heard her speak at Urbana 96 – a turning point in my life, a defining moment in my walk with the Lord.  She said, “Obedience is our task.  The results of our obedience, is God’s.”  

As we embark on our journey to Hong Kong in less than 4 months, obedience to God, His calling and leading to Hong Kong is what’s driving behind our decision to uproot our family.  We don’t know exactly what His plans are, what ministry we will be involved.  All we know at the moment is … I (Dan) will be working at ICS teaching Grade 4.  We have yet to visit a church, but God is already moving.  We have connections in Hong Kong that seemingly require some of  our attention, connections with people who we have met over the past couple of months, and a strong sense on both our parts that God is preparing something for us.  Romans 8:28 says, And we know that for those who love God, all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purposes.”

Would we continue to be faithful, to trust Him and to allow God to lead us.  Our heart’s desire is to be obedient … to be available, teachable and humble … would we be like Samuel … “Lord, here I am.”
