Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.John 14:21
Do You Love Him?
Do you really love the Lord? What is your relationship with Him based on? Is it based on how many times you go to church or what type of church you go to? Or maybe it is based on the people in the church and who talks to you. If this is the case, then you may have a greater love for the church than you do for the Lord. This verse is simple when it comes to loving the Lord. It says that if you truly love the Lord, then you will obey His commandments. It will not be a chore to obey Him, but a joy.
When you choose to love the Lord, He will pour out His love over you and reveal Himself to you more and more. Maybe it will be when you spend time in prayer and Bible Study, or maybe when you meet with other believers. Know that following Him means knowing and loving Him.
A Prayer to Remember
May your love pour out into my life. May I obey you out of my love and devotion to you, not out of obligation. Amen.
