Love and Obedience
The Upward Look

“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:15 NASB
When asked, many people say they love Jesus. When asked, many of those same people sadly say they do not obey His commandments. Yet Jesus clearly ties the two together. Our love for Jesus will be demonstrated by our obedience to His commands. Love and obedience are opposite sides of the same coin. You truly cannot have one without the other.
Lord Jesus, I do love you. Help me to learn and obey what You have commanded in Your Word, the Bible.
