Which Comes First – Love or Obedience?

Weigh Down Works

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” John 15:9-11

Many wayward hearts live to eat instead of eating to live. Food should be nothing more than fuel—we should drop the passion for food and eat simply just the amount to satisfy the hunger.

The world will argue which comes first, love or obedience, but I say that obedience IS love. You obey the one you love—it is an outpouring of the heart and something you cannot impede. If you are asking that question—how to fall in love with God—it lets you know that your heart is given to something else.  It does start in your mind—you make the choice, and the fruit of the superior choice will melt your heart into love.
