John 14:15–If you love me, keep my commands.
We obey God because we love Him. When we are doing something for someone we love, it’s not about duty, compulsion, or obligation. We aren’t worried about being paid back or anything like that. We do things for them simply because we love them and want to show that to them. Our relationship with God is to be that way. Do we obey simply because we love?
Father, I love You. I obey You and do the things You as simply because I want to show You I love You. You are my everything and I am pleased to do what brings You joy.
