so.... There is definitely a theme behind my verses I don't know about yours. I see it in the things God is teaching me. The things that are challenging me. As I study the example of the 1st Church [i.e. Disciples] of the the Book of Acts - let alone the disciples that Jesus walked with & taught. There are things in Scripture that say should be a sign of a "new believer" & yet - I don't live that. If I believe the Word of God to be true [and I do] than it demands that I learn to live that out. You can't live out what you are not willing to take a step forward in. One must do in order to learn. And so is the lesson on obedience - even if - it is uncomfortable.
