1 John 5:3. And this is the love of God that we keep his commandments.
What? God's love is for us to keep his commandments? How about something like, "This is love for God - we should keep his commandments."? That I can get.
Pastor Damian Kyle shared about how God's love really is shown to us in that He set up commandments to guide us and help us know and do His best. And like a parent enforces a rule because they love their child, God disciplines us in his commands because He loves us.
I liked the idea and understood it better than I can type it. Oh well. Maybe it's just something to think about.
