//I can obey God without loving Him but I cannot love Him without obeying Him. To love God is to obey Him. Jesus made this clear – “If you love Me, you will obey Me” (John 14:15). There is no wiggle room here. Love = obedience.
To love God is to do everything He tells me to do. And do so immediately, for delayed obedience is disobedience. And do so completely, for partial obedience is disobedience. Abba, help me. Forgive me. Help me to do all that You tell me to do.//
For obeying You immediately and completely is to love You well.
