Do it.



The Nike company gets in slogan what the church is benefited by in direction; Do it---obey God.

Obedience is to approach or be approached by an opportunity for God with a decision moment.  Do we or don't we?  Will we or won't we?  Could we or should we?  Do it.  Obey God.

From the very simplest of major biblical acts, it was the virgin Mary who said to God, Do it. 

Jeri Williams projected in her book, The Perfect Heart, a keen observation.  Even the God of the universe needed a co-laborer to manifest His will in the earth.  He is still seeking those who will give birth to His Word in the earth by faith.  The virgin Mary had hold of a principle that allowed the living Son of God to be birthed against all human feasibilities.  In spite of overwhelming odds of impossibilities, and no other capabilities than a pure believing heart, Mary stood at attention to obey the spoken Word of God.

And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.  And the angel departed from her.

To Nike it is a slogan.  To Mary it was a practice of obedience.  To us?  We will benefit from her example.
