The discipline of loving obedience…


When someone we love asks us to do something, we are quick to respond. This principle applies to our lives with God, yet, how often we hear but we do not obey. Jesus was quite clear, “If you love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Oh, how I love you, Jesus, we say. Yet our lives do not bear witness to our love. We are not willfully disobedient. We love out of our feelings but not out of our wills. When our wills are bent toward the One we love, we will find that we will quickly obey the commands we hear. – Ron Friesen
