Through our created likeness and image of God
Through the work of Christ
Through a personal call from God
The principle of obedience is revealed through nature.
“For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”
God created nature for you to enjoy and to enjoy it you must obey it.
If you water your plants and feed them they will live. Neglect them and they will die. Nature is on a course. And whatever you do that adheres to the principle of nature works to your benefit. And whatever you do that works against nature works to your detriment.
If you feed your children healthy food, your children will reap the benefits of this behavior. If you feed them fast food, day in and day out, then you should expect to have unhealthy children.
Nature is relentless and demands obedience.
Pollute the air and it makes you sick. Clean it up and you reap the positive results.
Drink pure water and it will help purify your body. Drink impure water and in no time at all you are sick.
Other laws of nature like - cleaning your house, marriage of a man to a woman - protection of your water reserves, prove that obedience to natural law is required for good health and a long life.
Disregard natural law like:
using biologicals as a weapon
practicing homosexuality or perversion of any kind
abusing your body
And you will reap the consequence of disobedience.
Even nature itself, the most base of the four principles of obedience teaches you that natural law must be obeyed."
