Motivated By Love

My Utmost For His Highest
“If one rules another by saying, “You must do this,” and, “You will do that,” he breaks the human spirit, making it unfit for God. A person is simply a slave for obeying, unless behind his obedience is the recognition of a holy God. Many people begin coming to God once they stop being religious, because there is only one master of the human heart— Jesus Christ, not religion.” CHAMBERS
John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commands”.  Our obedience is to be a result of our love .. not our fear of punishment.  Jesus said that our obedience would be a reflection of our love and the opposite is also true … our lack of obedience reflects our lack of love and commitment to Jesus …. Isn’t that really what hurts your heart when your children disobey?  Everything I do should have love behind it … Love for the One who has saved me .. love for others (Matthew 22:37-39).
1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
