12/05/09: 1 John 5:1-21; Psalm 124:1-8; Proverbs 29:5-8
Maybe it is just me but I often have trouble deciding on just the right gift that I can give someone to show how much I love them. I mean – should it be a card, lyrics from a meaningful song, or a physical present? And, then what card, song, or present should it be? And, then who is going to wrap it?
And how do we show the Lord how much we love Him? Well, the inspired Word has the answer — “obey his commands”
1 John 5: 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. 3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
