1 John 2:3-5
"By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says,"I have come to know Him," and does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in Him, but Whosoever keeps His Word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected."
At the present time I hear many profess to be Christians, but I see few who know or keep the commandments of God. You can’t obey commandments you don’t know. In order to follow Christ, you must know Him and His love for you. This will produce a love for Him greater than the addictions you have become a slave to, whatever it might be. Our love for Him is perfected out of obedience as Jesus exemplified for us. We too must come to desire His will more than our own simply because we have grown to love Him and His ways more than our fleshly desires. His ways are perfect, holy, and good. The flesh reaps corruption and death. His love is perfect. You cannot experience from anyone or anything what only God can give. Allow His love to be perfected in you, and share it with a world in desperate need of a
In His love.
Yesterday I enjoyed a "Southern Tea" given by one of my dearest clients, Marie Smith. What fun we had with hats and all!
