Love and Obedience
Often, when Christians think about loving God, they think of spending sweet time with Him in their devotions or worshipping Him through song in their church. Occasionally, someone will remember Christ’s statement, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” But did you know that there are no less than 18 verses of Scripture which directly correlate love with obedience? This correlation has many applications in our walk with the Lord as well as in other areas like parenting and leadership. There is much that could be said about this correlation, but let me just present the list itself, and see if any interesting conversations develop:
