Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me. John 14:23-24
Our love for Jesus is demonstrated by the way we live our lives. If we claim to love Christ yet continue in sin we are living a lie. If we truly live the Lord we will walk in obedience.
The world and the culture of the day is in opposition to God’s kingdom. If we desire the praise and honor of men it will cause us to walk in disobedience. But if we desire the honor of the Lord, we will turn from the world and its ways. Actions speak louder than words. If we claim to love Jesus then every area of our lives should honor Him.
