“Loving God means doing what he tells us to do, and really, that isn’t hard at all”
1 John 5:3
Have you ever had someone tell you that they love you but then everything they do seems to scream the opposite? It can be a very challenging time and is often difficult to navigate. One of the hardest lessons we learn in life can be that words are cheap and that they’re often difficult to act out.
Today’s verse shows us that we should display our love for God in a very specific way. We should do what He tells us to do – that is how we’re to display our love. Now, this can seem simple but if we open our Bible and start reading, we’ll soon discover some very challenging instruction.
Always remember that God only ever asks the possible of us never the impossible. So, if it’s in His Word, then it’s possible for us to do. When we truly love God the way he loves us, with agape love, then we’ll find it easy to act upon what He asks. We love Him & so we love acting upon His Word.
This week let’s display our Love for the Father. Let’s not just say it, but rather, let’s do what He’s telling us to do. Let’s send a clear love message to our father in heaven that we love Him like He loves us. In no time at all we’ll discover that we’re walking in a higher realm of intimacy with God and we’ll be thinking “Why didn’t we do this earlier.”
