Why do we need to obey God?
The Holy Spirit.
Why do we want our children to obey us?
We obey because we LOVE Him and need relationship with Him and would never risk losing His presence. As such it is not a burden, but a display of love.
We obey because we love God, and God loves us all.Because God loves everyone around us, we choose to obey for their benefit.Sin causes more sin and spreads suffering for ourselves and others.
" There is a spirit in Man and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding "(Job 32:8).In the beginning they were told, " Let us make man after our own image and likeness ".
