Jesus proved His love for us by dying on the cross. How do we prove our love for Him? Jesus makes it very clear: If you love Me, keep My commandments. (Jhn 14:15) The first time that really hit me, I was guilted by all the things I knew I wasn’t doing. But over time, that has changed.
The reason I felt guilty when I read that before was because I had pretty flimsy love. You know, the kind of love that works for me, not Him. The kind of love that will let me do some things He wants, but not others. It was a love of convenience. Actually, it wasn’t all that loving.
Now when I consider what He says, I think, but of course I will obey You. I want to obey the One my heart turns to the most. I want to please Him. I trust Him, so I know what ever He’s got going on will be for me, not against me. I’m not saying it’s always easy, but think about it. If you love someone , truly love them, you will do anything for them, no matter how inconvenient.
Take stock of how much you really love God and ask Him to help you increase that. The more you love Him, the more amazing He becomes to you.
