If anyone would ever request God a proof of His love, I am sure there couldn’t be a greater proof than sending His own Son to die for us. And what about us? Can we do something to show our love for God?
In fact, we can:
“If you love me, you will obey what I command.” (John 14:15)
This is love for God: to obey his commands. (1 John 5:3)
And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love. (2 John 1:6)
Do you love God? Do you love Jesus? Then, according to Him, you will obey His commands. It’s that simple.
And this is not about proving our love so we are worthy of anything. We will never be worthy of His love. But when we show our love for Him, we are giving back something that He gave to us: true love.
