In dependence on divine grace …

1 Kings 11:14-12:24; Acts 15:22-41; Psalm 77:10-20

“They obeyed the Word of the Lord” (1 Kings 12:24). They were “commended … to the grace of the Lord” (Acts 15:40). Obedience to the Word of the Lord and being commended to the grace of God  – these two things belong together. We can only promise obedience to God “in dependence on divine grace.” If we do not feed our faith on “the deeds of the Lord” (Psalm 77:11), our obedience will waver. “I will consider all Your works and meditate on all Your mighty deeds” (Psalm 77:12). This is the way of strengthening faith and obedience.
