If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. John 14:15 NASB
For many, love is a feeling. It is a good feeling when things are good. You love someone and they love you back.
When we think about love, we think about Valentine’s Day, romantic dates, a long embrace and just being with someone very special to you.
But Jesus talked about love differently. He said that if you love Him, you will obey His commands. That is way different than most people think about love!
If we bring what most people think about love into our faith, we wouldn’t really be loving Jesus the way He wants us to! We wouldn’t be loving Jesus on His terms.
So those that truly love Jesus are going to follow His commands. How do we know them? We have the Bible. When we read the Bible, we can understand and know how Jesus wants us to live.
When we live the way He desires us to, we show Him that we truly love Him. This is more than words, this is action!
Are you really loving Jesus? Obey His commands and show Him!
Father, help me to understand and live in obedience to Your Word so I can show my love for You.
