" If you love Me, you will keep My commandments..."

John 14: 15

     Our Lord never insists on our obedience.  He stresses very definitely what we ought to do, but He never forces us to do it.  That is why whenever our Lord talked about discipleship, He began with "if".  The Lord does not give us rules, but makes His standard very clear.  If your relationship with Him is that of love, you will do as He says without hesitation.  If you hesitate it is because you love someone else, namely yourself.

     When you surrender to God in obedience, and obey Jesus Christ, the plan of man's redemption shows through your life and to the lives of others.  Because, behind the deeds of obedience is the reality of Almighty God.
