Obedience, Illumination, and Liberation

The only way to truly understand the will of God, or God's written word, is by obeying Jesus.

Scholars can spend their entire lives mining the depths of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament for its truth without satisfaction. Devout believers routinely wrestle with "knowing God's will," yet remain disappointed. Neither academic analysis of the Scriptures, nor soul-wrenching angst, can illuminate God's will or God's word more than simple obedience of Jesus's teachings.

This thought is so simple it may be dismissed out of hand. How could simple obedience serve as a tool to illuminate God's will or God's word? At least part of the answer can be summed up with two ideas: 1) The Superiority of Experiential Knowledge; and 2) Faith as Relational Trust.
