The enemy tried to get us to make slight changes, to get us slightly off course. Over time and distance, the off-course direction increases. We must walk in obedience to God’s will, otherwise we are in rebellion. Our love for God must override our rebellion. We must do our part, what God has called us to do! This far exceeds all sacrifice. Listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on October 23, 2016, based on 1 Samuel 15:22–23 NKJV.

Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,
And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
He also has rejected you from being king.
”  —Samuel 15:22–23 NKJV
