There is no doubt that love is at the core of a righteous man. At the heart of who we are and what we do is shown by how pure our love is. Jesus plainly said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” (John 14:15 NAS) It is that simple.

 

It is easy to say, “I love the Lord.” The proof of love is in doing what the Lord said! Obviously, if we don’t love the Lord we won’t obey Him. These points are just too simple to miss. How do parents know if their children love them? By observing if they obey them.

 

If we are a child of God, we will be obedient to God. When our earthly parents give us instructions to obey, it is a simple thing to measure our love for them by whether we are OBEDIENT to them or not. The same example holds true for God.

 

God has given His word to mankind to direct our life from earth to Heaven. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalms 119:105) If we love God we will know His word by a diligent study and we will allow it to direct our lives. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2Timothy 2:15)

 

Jesus said, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32) Every man is enslaved to sin. Only our obedience to the truth can set us free from sin.

 

Again, Jesus said, "I said therefore to you, that you shall die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you shall die in your sins."  (John 8:24 NAS)

 

Jesus said again, “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” (Mark 16:16)

 

True love will not question, “WHY?” True love will do or die! It is easy to say, “I love you!” Yes, the proof of love is in the DOING!

 

If we truly love God we will not question what God has said we must do for our salvation. All men can agree on the Word of God IF we have a love for the truth.
