He Died on the Cross for Us
by Teresa Smeigh
Love Leads to Obedience
John II 1:6 The Everyday Life Bible
1:6 And what this love consists in is this: that we live and walk in accordance with and guided by his commandments (His orders, ordinances, precepts, teaching). This is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you continue to walk in love [guided by it and following it].
The level of our obedience to Jesus determines our level of our love for him.
Love and obedience can grow and they do.
Do not be angry with yourself if you are still in the process. Jesus won’t be angry at us.
Help me to continue to walk in love. I love you and am working to follow in your path. I will forgive myself if I am not perfect when you arrive.
