Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in his book "Ethics,
" talks about what we should do when God gives us a command.
Just like a child and their parents, when God gives a command, we aren't to stop and consider the command; instead, we are to execute on it. If you have stopped to consider it, you aren't in obedience. Instead, you are judging God's command, and in essence, you are declaring yourself to be God, or to be above Him. This is the same as Eve's disobedience in the Garden of Eden. Eve questioned God's command and she chose to disobey after
having judged God as not being Lord over her.
Obedience doesn't require judging the command. It instead requires obeying immediately without stopping to consider.Do you obey God when He calls, or do you judge His command?
