Express love to God by obeying God. – Deuteronomy 11:22

Deuteronomy 11:22 (NLT) “Be careful to obey all these commands I am giving you. Show love to the lord your God by walking in his ways and holding tightly to him.”

What is God saying to me? We do not obey to earn favor with God. God has freely given us undeserved favor = grace.  Obedience is an opportunity to live in a love relationship with God. Jesus said in John 15:10 “If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.”

How will I obey? I want to look for ways to express love to God today through obedience.  Like writing a letter to express love to my parents, wife or daughter, I want to write a letter of love to The One who first loved me.

Do you see your obedience as a demonstration of love to God?
