“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”
Do you love God? That may seem like a silly question, but take the time to stop and really ask yourself, “Do I really love the Lord?” Most of us who are saved are mindful of what Christ did for us. We talk about His goodness. We understand to a certain extent how much God loves us. But Jesus says clearly that if we love Him we will follow His commandments.
Truly loving Jesus is displayed by living to please Him. God is pleased when we carry ourselves according to Biblical principles. This means we must study and not live based off of what we think God would like. We have to give God more than lip service and just attending church a few times per week. Real love for Jesus Christ is displayed in a Christian’s lifestyle. Now think about that and ask yourself again, “Do I REALLY love Jesus?”
