Love Dare 10: Love keeps God’s commands.
“The one who has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves me.” John 14:21
Loving Go is a whole hearted, lifelong adventure. It I not a a part-time job or Sunday-only affair but complete devotion of ourselves to seeking and treasuring who God is. Every thought, value, and action can become another way to say “I love You” to God. And loving Him is the perfect why behind what we do. It begins by confessing our faith in His Son Jesus, and then is fueled by an ongoing obedience to Him- in everything. But our love makes following Him a relational delight rather than religious chore. (1 John 5:13) And as we daily abandon sin and do what He says, the peace and joy we derive makes us love Him even more.
God’s Word says we also love Him through the ways we treat, serve, and love others. (1 John 3:17) So every conversation and interaction in your marriage is a new opportunity to bless your spouse and demonstrate your love for God as well. Ultimately, how you love and respect your mate reveals every day the sincerity of your love and respect for God.
