True Love = Obedience

I wanted to write a post about God’s great love, but I was amazed at what I saw as I opened the Bible to the book of John and read Jesus’ words:”If you love me, you will obey what I command.” (John 14:15)

“Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me.” (John 14:21)

“Jesus replied,’If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching…” (John 14:23)

“If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love.” (John 15:10)

“You are my friends if you do what I command.” (John 15:14)

“This is my command: Love each other.” (John 15:17)

So, do you see the pattern? Loving comes through obedience. It is a realization that His commands lead us to relationship with Him—a love relationship.

Could it be that Obedience is the action of Love?
