Why are we to be obedient to God? Is it because he knows what’s next? That God has are best, and we will be better off if we listen to Him? “but I gave them this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in obedience to all I command you, that it may go well with you.”
Jeremiah 7:23 NIV obedience makes it possible for us to have the closest relationship that we possibly can to God. He wants to connect with us. He wants to be close. God wants intimacy with his people!
