Walk In Obedience To His Commands
💫 ❤️ Love & Obedience 💖
🌞 Love is the spring of true obedience. “This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments.” Now a man who is not obedient to God’s commandments is evidently not a true believer; for although good works do not save us, yet, being saved, believers are sure to produce good works.
🙇♀️ Though the fruit is not the root of the tree, yet a well-rooted tree will, in its season, bring forth its fruits. So, though the keeping of the commandments does not make me a child of God, yet, being a child of God, I shall be obedient to my heavenly Father. But this I cannot be unless I love God.
🙇♂️ 🙇♂️ A mere external obedience, a decent formal recognition of the laws of God, is not obedience in God’s sight. He abhors the sacrifice where the heart is not found. I must obey because I love, or else I have not in spirit and in truth obeyed at all. See then, that to produce the indispensable fruits of saving faith, there must be love for God; for without it, they would be unreal and indeed impossible.
— C. H. Spurgeon (from Strengthen My Spirit)
Happy are they who love the Lord,
Whose hearts have Him confessed,
Who by His cross have found their life,
Beneath His yoke their rest. — Bridges
Love, Joy and Peace is the result of walking with God.
