I Samuel 15, 16 In David, God saw a man of faith who would honor Him through his obedience. You Can Only Disobey God For So Long. God is patient and gives us time to repent. But sooner or later a just God sets things right. You can appear to love and serve God but really only love and serve yourself. Saul’s disobedience was evidence of his lack of commitment, or faith, in God. We Need To Understand What Matters To God God looks at people differently than us. When you seek to honor God, obedience is natural. Faith does not cancel out obedience.
