This month the world focuses on Love. But as Christians this focus on Love should be constant. First, “We love him, because he first loved us.” You never get over the love that God has for you. He wrote, “I love you” in the blood that Jesus shed on the cross. So, do you love Him? You love him first because He loves you, and second because He has commanded that you love Him – “ Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength” (Mark 12:30). You are to love God by obeying Him – “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Therefore, you are to do all that you can to obey God, and thus show your love for Him. He showed His love for you by sending Jesus Christ to die for you on the cross (Romans 5:8). So when you think about Love this month, think about God’s love for you, and about your obedience to Him.
