“If you love me, you will keep my commands.”
John 14:15 CJB
When we love someone, we will listen to them and try to make them happy by doing what they say. So if we love the LORD, we really should be striving to do what He says!
“For loving God means obeying His commands. Moreover, His commands are not burdensome.”
1 John 5:3 CJB
The LORD gives us commands not to be a burden, but to help us walk on His right path and to do things His way, not ours! His ways keep us from messes, our ways get us into a mess!
“Whoever has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me, and the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him.”
John 14:21 CJB
Today, don’t look at the world and its disfunction, but instead just look to the LORD and His love! If you feel overwhelmed or confused about His commands! don’t. Just keep the first one: “Love the LORD your God with all your soul” and watch everything else work out!
Have a blessed day loving the LORD!
