This is Love: to Walk in Obedience to His Commands - 2 John 1:6

Love is obedience
I love how God’s Word blends into an orchestra of truth.

For example, Matthew 11:28-30 says:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Christ gives us rest as we take on His yoke of purposes, learning to obey Him. He’s God, yet He’s so humble He welcomes us to walk with Him.

First John 5:3 says the same thing more concisely:
“This is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome.”

Second John 1:6 is a bit more concise:
"And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands."

And John 14:15 is the Bible Love Note’s version:
"If you love me, keep my commands."

I love how God’s Word blends into an orchestra of truth.
