John 14:15 (NKJV) If you love Me, keep My commandments.
Love and action are connected.
If we say we love Jesus but do not do what He asks us to do then our words are empty and meaningless, for love and action always go together.
The peril that we face is confusing our love for Jesus with what we hope Jesus will do for us. If we’re not careful when we say, “Jesus, I love you,” what we will really mean is, “Jesus, I’d love for you to do something for me.”
- The ONE THING for today: Make this your constant prayer – “Jesus, I love you, what would You love for me do?”
