Spirit of Faith: Obedience to God
Obedience to God is a compilation of writings and prayers that deal with the subject of obedience to God. Spiritual seekers of all faiths will relish these uplifting passages that underscore the unity of thought that helps us define our place within a single, unfolding, and divine creation. This collection contains writings from Bahá'u'lláh, the Báb, and 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
From a Bahá'í perspective, the Prophets or Manifestations of God, the Founders of the world's great religions, are as divine Physician Whose laws, teachings, and admonitions contain the remedy for the ailments of mankind. To follow the teachings and observe the laws prescribed by the Manifestation of God for the day in which we live is, from a Bahá'í perspective, to fulfill a major part of our duty as human beings and to align ourselves with the divine guidance available to us. From this perspective, obedience can be seen as a source of empowerment and as the core of personal spiritual development.
The Spirit of Faith series explores a range of topics - such as the unity of humanity, the eternal covenant of God, the promise of world peace, and much more - by taking an in-depth look at how the writings of the Bahá'í Faith view these issues. The series is designed to encourage readers of all faiths to think about spirituality, and to take time to pray and meditate on these important topics.
