“How I long to be deeper in love”.
Love is many things and one of them, often neglected, is obedience:
John 14:15 “If you love me, you will obey what I command.” and later,
John 15:10 “If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love.”
& lastly 1 John 5:3
“1 John This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”
Occasionally I miss those superbly emotional experiences and encounters. But that’s not the basis nor the indicator of love (: Same goes with loving other human beings.. it’s when you most dislike people that you need to love most.
