If You Love Me…

“If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.” – John 15:10

Moms and Dads, what is the greatest proof of your children’s love for you? Is it when they say they love you? That’s great, but does it prove they love you? No. The real proof of their love is when they willingly obey you. Many people miss this truth. The same holds true when it comes to loving God. Many say they love God, maybe even go to church regularly, but there isn’t much evidence of obedience to God’s rules in their lives – which, of course, is the real evidence of our love.

Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” The proof of our love is our willingness to obey God and His commands. Doesn’t it make you feel great when your child willingly obeys you? It gives you joy because you feel maybe they “got it.” Why don’t you give God the same joy? Obey Him because it’s your desire to do so. Love Him like you want to be loved by others.
