The One Jesus Loved, Day 18

What is love? As we take a look a little deeper into exactly what it means to love, we see this definition in 2 John 1:4-6.

To love means to obey. If we are truly loving God, then we will be obedient to everything he says. That’s it. We cannot love God and disobey his word. They simply do not go together. Also, if we are to demonstrate love to other people, it will be love that is consistent and obedient to all that Jesus Christ is. There is no love outside of Jesus Christ.

How are we loving other people? How do we define what it means to love? We need to get back to the place where our only standard of what it means to love is the obedience and truth of Jesus Christ.
