Partial Obedience=Full disobedience

Have you been partial with God lately? 

Have you only revered God with just 1 title?

Who is God to you=your level of obedience

As i reflected on this scripture Luke 5 with emphasis on verse 4-8.  I realized that our tenacity to demonstrate small faith encourages our ability to hear incomplete instructions from God which in many circumstances produces partial obedience.  Our partiality often creates room for leakage or breakage or filtered blessings. 

I cannot help but to observe Peter’s mind by observing his actions.  Jesus said, put down all your nets.  The important instructions within this sentence are:  *NETS* the subject. At this moment Jesus was Master to Peter, he revered him as Master.  Peter said, ‘Master, I will put down the net.’ 

Important message here is, ‘NET’ the subject.  Observe the difference, ‘the smallest thing is missing, one S’ that changes the instruction and that fuels partiality.

Isn’t it remarkable how one small information being misread, misinterpreted or missing can cause you to experience a breakage or leakage in your blessings?

Because Peter put down one net, the net started breaking.  Not only could they have caught more but they almost lose all their blessing back to the water. 

‘Are you guilty of partial obedience to God?’

What struck me, is the instant switch in reverence that Peter had for Jesus in his moment of watching his blessing, his overflow almost went before their eyes.  Peter now revered Jesus as, Lord!

On our knees, who is God to us?

When God instructs us, who is God to us?

On our journey of carrying out that instruction, who is God to us?

Do we need to be like Peter right now and fall on our knees before God crying out to him?

What are you partial about?  Was God partial in what he does in your life?

God is never partial but our finite mind causes us to be partial in our obedience even without being conscious of it. 

God wants our full attention.  Perhaps Peter was not fully attentive.  When we are not listening actively, chances are we will receive incorrect instructions or information which oftentimes result in partial obedience=full disobedience.

Why is this equation so?

Well as i tried understanding this partial act and the full results.  I then started to reason with myself and this is what I came up with.

Sugar & organic fruit juice

Partial sugar=Concentrated product

When sugar is added to organic juices it changes the quality of the product.

It is nolonger organic but it is now concentrated no matter the amount you pour in it.

Let us seek to obey in full, let us seek to revere God as Lord at all times.  God is more than our boss.  He is Soverign Lord!


Lord Jesus, you are my Lord now and forever more. I trust your leadership and i surrender to your commands. My Lord teach me daily how to sacrifice self to host your Holy Spirit in me. Grant me pureness of heart as i seek your face daily. Forgive me, for the times i decided not to trust you but to be swaddled in fear, doubts and insecurities in Jesus name, Amen.
