“If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14: 15)
Our obedience to the law of God, to His loving rules for life, comes naturally with our love for Him. In proportion to our consciousness of God and His true nature–that which is worthy of adoration, devotion, fidelity, and faith–we are able to keep His commandments with a sense of ease and joy.
If we are loving the perfect spiritual good that is God; if we are acknowledging Him as our very own Father and Mother and True Love, we can’t help but want to be loyal to His word, to trust His laws to guide us and keep us safe and satisfied. Recognize this natural love of God, of Love, of Life in your hearts and minds, and gracefully and gratefully obey Him.
God’s commandments are truly beckonings into the very Life that is most like us, most right for us, most loving and freeing. His commandments are not restrictions. They are those laws that open our lives to its true potential. His commandments are not that which deprive us of freedom, but which alert us to freedom, all that is real and enduring and right.
Be true to God by being true to yourself, to that which Love caused you to be. Honor divine Love’s creative control, and follow His perfect way of infinite purpose, protection, potential and promise.
