Psalm 132 is meant to be a reminder of how our obedience comes about: it comes from God first being faithful to us. We obey, live by the Holy Spirit’s guiding, because we understand how great, worthy and good God is. We are told in the scriptures that Jesus came to fulfill the law, everything we couldn’t measure up to, He lived the perfect life of obedience for us. He wants to return us to who we were meant to be, image bearers of God! This is why the scriptures are big on obedience. Obedience to God increases the freedom that matters most to human beings, and we obey God because God alone in all the universe is worth obeying.
