Deuteronomy 5:1-6:25

Obey God’s commands; listen, be careful to do; walk straight; don’t veer off; deeply respect, etc., words and phrases found all throughout today’s reading. Do you think God is trying to tell us something?

Jesus speaking in the 14th chapter of John states:

If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands. (John 14:15 AMP)

We look at “love” as an emotion, and confuse it with mercy, though mercy flows from love. God says love is a verb and is a “doing.” We determine if someone loves us by what they do for us; God determines love for Him by obedience to His Word. Is there anyway we can reconcile what we call love to God’s definition? God is immutable so He can’t change, it is against His nature. We have to change our understanding of what love is to fit into God’s standard. Loving God His way, which is the only way that counts, brings BIG benefits for us,

And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to [reverently] fear the Lord our God for our good always, that He might preserve us alive, as it is this day. And it will be accounted as righteousness (conformity to God's will in word, thought, and action) for us if we are watchful to do all this commandment before the Lord our God, as He has commanded us. (Deuteronomy 6:24-25 AMP)

Grace and peace,

Love follows the same thing. We can't love only to get back. We have to love unconditionally with the right attitude . I like giving gifts sometimes my gifts might seem buying love? Especially gor my DIL's who I'm trying to earn favor. Do we buy gifts for kids to keep them? Divorced parents try to buy kids attention n love?
Also faith is a verb. It can't be measured. It's not the size of the faith. It's whether we exercise it! Stretch your faith, step out of the boat! See what God can do. Wait and expect!!!
