Trust and obey

When we walk with the Lord
  In the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way;
  While we do His good will,
  He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
  Trust and obey,
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
  But to trust and obey.
Not a shadow can rise,
  Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
  Not a doubt or a fear,
  Not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
Not a burden we bear,
  Not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
  Not a grief or a loss,
  Not a frown or a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.
But we never can prove
  The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay;
  For the favor He shows,
  And the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
Then in fellowship sweet
  We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
  What He says we will do;
  Where He sends, we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.

He who trust ONLY without obeying might not get any result, but trusting and obeying brings one to the experimental side of Christianity. This can be compared to willing ONLY and willing and ACTION. No matter how willing you are, without Action you will never see any result.

For those who are thinking this is all this man wrote: actually, he wrote over 100 hymns but most are not sung now. Most of them are on the themes of trust and obedience. You can Google him for more info. As with all writers, time has a way of sifting out the poorer hymns and leaving the best and this is definitely his best. We still sing it regularly in our Methodist Church.

If we have faith in God, we will trust and obey Him. For by doing this we show He's our all in all.

This is the very essence of Faith: Trust and Obey. In Hebrews, the eleventh chapter, we are shown some factual statements about faith but not its actual definition. True, it is the substance of things hoped for, and it is the evidence of things not seen. However, neither of these things nor the sum of them together equals the nature of Faith. Faith is doing your part in a relationship whether or not you see your partner doing his. In the salvific relationship a Christian enjoys with his Lord, it consists of trusting God and obeying Him, even when the fruits of such trust and obedience are not evident. Only then does the Author of Hebrews' words' meaning become clear: Faith is the substance of the heavenly reward that you hope for; it is the assurance of the fruits of your faith that you cannot yet see.
