And Samuel said,“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 listen than the fat of rams. (1-я Царств 15:22 Russian)
И отвечал Самуил: неужели всесожжения и жертвы столько же приятны Господу, как послушание гласу Господа? Послушание лучше жертвы и повиновение лучше тука овнов; (1-я Царств 15:22 Russian)
O LORD our God ~ we enter your gates of mercy with hearts full of hope and thanksgiving because of our unique relationship as your children of faith in Christ Jesus, your beloved Son. Stir up a strong desire among leaders of local congregations of believers to the obligation to render wholehearted obedience to the plain teaching of Scripture, especially that of Christ and the apostles. Shame those teachers who refuse to teach obedience, but substitute it with mere mental agreement. We pray fervently in the name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr., Gospel Minister
