Love... Is Obedient To Christ
If you love Me, obey My Commandments...

Those who accept My Commandments and obey Them are the ones who love Me. And because they love Me, My Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal Myself to each of them...

All who love Me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and We will come and make Our home with each of them.
John 14:15, 21, 23 (NLT)
Why is obeying God's Word so hard for me and most Christians? I believe the daunting challenge is living unselfishly.

As media continues to play the hit song, me-me-me... To keep our focus on Him-Him-Him is a daily struggle.

Who wants to carry a cross when we can wear a pretty one?

I do. I want to carry my cross. I believe you do, too.

Therefore, let's repeat after Jesus: Love is obedience. Even so, when we mess up, let's fess up, and try, try again.

Also, let's renew our Minds by reading His Orders daily.

Therefore, we love.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
