His commandments

#loveofGod
#loveforMan

Loving Him and demonstrating my love for Him by keeping His commandments results in my growth as a Christian. Why? Because keeping His commandments correlates with Him revealing who He is to me. With that knowledge, my relationship with Him grows and so does my love for humanity! First I will seek Him through keeping His commandment and solidify my relationship with Him. Then I will be able to love others the way that He loves them.

What was His commandment to us?

30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31 (ESV). Lastly,  34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. John 13:34 (KJV). Loving others as He loves us is a tall order. He puts up with all of our “mess” and He loves us no less!
