Ignorance vs. Obedience

Obedience to God is never easy. Yet  it is essential for one's spiritual growth.

«The opposite of ignorance in the spiritual realm is not knowledge. God is not impressed by how much you know. How can God be impressed with how much you know when everything you know is the product of what he has revealed?!
The opposite of ignorance is the spiritual realm is not knowledge, it’s obedience, it’s responsveness. To what extent are you responding to what God has revealed? If you are — you’re growing up; if you aren’t — you are merely growing old.»

Howard Hendricks, quoted  from Synthetic Bible study, Part 1 of 8
