All of God’s New Testament commands have important and loving purposes. God didn’t give them randomly or legalistically. He gave them to warn us of danger and instruct us.
By obeying God’s commands, we embrace His design for us.
In John 15:14, Christ said, “You are my friends if you do what I command.”
We can do what God commands without loving God,
but we cannot love God without doing what He commands.
This week let’s be a friend to Christ by obeying Him and let’s be a friend to others by lovingly speaking up for God’s commands whenever we have the opportunity.
