Read: 2 John

Key Verse: “And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.” - 2 John 1:6

Your love for God is demonstrated by obedience. Love usually has a positive connotation, and obedience does not sound as heartwarming. Faith is far more than feelings; both obedience and love include actions. Obedience is a choice of the will, trusting that God’s ways are wise and good. Obedience is a surrender that is not aimless or passive. The only way to walk in love is to walk in obedience.

Christ was obedient when He died on the cross. It is His sacrificial and inspiring obedience that changes your destiny from heaven to hell. Your spiritual DNA in Christ is obedience and faithfulness. He is the One who will help you to stay the course. Obedience could be going, saying, or doing something that you would not do on your own. If God asks you to complete an assignment, that is all of the reason and motivation you need. God is pleased when you hear His voice and know His heart is kind.
