With a surrendered heart to the Lord there is a grace of obedience. Think of some of the best relationships you see between a child and a parent. Those relationships most likely represented a mutual love, honor, respect. The parent eager to bless the child with gifts of blessings, love and correction. The child eager to please the parent with heartfelt obedience and longing to honor their parent. God in His mercy gave us His Son Jesus Christ to redeem our lost world.
