If you love Me, you will OBEY Me

“If you love me, keep my commands” (John 14:15)

Every so often God puts a message in my heart and mind that just won’t quit.  Everywhere I turn, that message is repeated.  This morning that message is simple.  If I love God, I will obey Him.  Nothing fancy. Nothing complicated.  Pastor Greg challenged the congregation this morning with the idea that God is in control, He is sovereign.  He asked us what we weren’t letting him control?  He said it is all about our response.  When God calls us to do something, it is up to us to respond in an appropriate manner.  If we do that, then God is free to move in mighty ways!  We can see mountains moved and problems solved in ways that just blow our minds!  It is all about how we respond to the voice and call of God.

What is my response to the call of God on my life?  Am I willing to be obedient and trust him whether I understand what he is doing or not?  Do I feel like I need to be in control, that I can do a better job?  Or do I step aside from my understanding of things and look to Him?  Do I obey when obedience is inconvenient or hard or no fun?  Do I truly love Him?
