Love = Obeying God

This is love for God: to obey His commands.

1 John 5:3

If a stranger at the mall walked up to you and asked you if you loved God what would you say? Most of us would say yes I think. But what would our answer be based on? Most of us are familiar with God. Most attend church somewhere. Most of us pray and read our Bibles. We turn to God when we are in a bad situation or we are upset about something. But saying you love God is not like saying "I love to go to the beach," or saying "I love to run."  No friends, loving God has obedience attached to it. 

Whether or not you really love God will be obvious to Him and others by your obedience. Obeying his commands shows your love. Where can you learn more about God's commandments you ask? It's easy. Read your Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to help reveal His word to you!!
