Obedience is better than Sacrifice.

What do you think would have happened to Jesus, if Joseph didn’t obey God’s command? The bible describes Joseph as a just man. When he found out his espoused wife, Mary, was pregnant. It took the intervention of God to convince him to take her as his wife. If he hadn’t, she would have become a public disgrace and by the law could have been stoned to death. God moved the whole earth around with the tax from Ceasar. Otherwise, Joseph wouldn’t have taken Mary to Bethlehem where Jesus was born. Then after the wise men came to see Jesus, God warned Joseph about Herod wanted to kill Jesus. God provided money to live in Egypt, the gifts of the wise men. Then when Herod died, God told Joseph to come home and warned him to go to Nazareth. No one knew who Jesus was except Mary and Joseph. Until, He began His ministry. If Joseph didn’t obey God, what would have happened to Jesus? Now look at your life and ask the same question. Because we are still following God and developing Jesus in our life. What would happen if you don’t obey and follow Jesus? It is because obedience is better than sacrifice.
