Jesus said, “If you love Me, you obey Me.” (John 14:15)
Obedience is birthed from love. We love because He FIRST loved us (1 John 4:19). It is our established identity of being loved is what graces us to love. Always keep in mind that our being precedes our doing and that we cannot give what we do not have. Obedience therefore is an expression of our love for Him.
