Jesus said, "If you love me, you will obey what I command." (John 14:15) The moral test of love is obedience. Have I done what He's commanded? The bad news is "If we claim to be without sin, we are only fooling ourselves" (1 John 1:8, NLT). The good news is "if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father." (1 John 2:1, NLT) The cliché "all we need is love" is a wonderful sentiment, but our society fights against the fact that love is demonstrated through submission (acceptance), and our first order of business must be submission to God. We'll talk about how these same principles are active in our human relationships as well.
