Shouldn't we just obey because He is a Holy God?
Does there need to be more reason than that?
Yes He delights in blessings (every good and perfect gift is from above)
but shouldn't it be enough that He's called us to it and He's Holy so it's got to be good...?

It's something I've been thinking about lately. Yes, the bible speaks about rewards in heavan for being faithful on earth, but should that be our motivation for becoming Christ-like, for striving to be obedient to what God has called us to do?
I don't know.
And it's something I am struggling with right now.
I love the fact that there are rewards in heavan, but if that's my only reason for doing what I know God has called me to do on earth, is that right? Shouldn't I be o.k doing what He has asked of me, regardless, simply because it is a command from God?
I need to think on it and pray about it...anyone have any thougths?
