This Is Love


The Upward Look

“And this is love: that we walk according to His commands. This is the command as you have heard it from the beginning: you must walk in love.”
   2 John 6 HCSB  

The believer demonstrates his love for God by obeying God’s commandments. It is plain and simple, to love God means to keep His commands. “Walk” means one’s manner of life, one’s habitual conduct and actions. The believer’s lifestyle should be one of obedience to God and of love for God and others. This command to love is not new to the believers. Jesus commanded that His disciples were to love one another even as He loved them. Thus, the believer’s life should reflect Jesus’ love.

 Lord Jesus, I desire to obey Your Word. Help me to do what You have commanded and to share Your love with others.
