The power of love

I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. Jn. 15:9-10

Jesus’ commandments were to love God with all our hearts, minds, and souls and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Love is the compelling force in God’s existence as a Triune entity. Love is the motivating force for God’s plan of redemption. Love is the attracting force for revealing His plan to those who haven’t heard. Love is the binding agent that holds us together as His body.

Lord, show me how to obey love.
