“Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them. Anyone who doesn’t love me will not obey me. And remember, my words are not my own. What I am telling you is from the Father who sent me.” - John 14:23-24
OK, this one’s going to be brief. You say you love God, right? And do you obey Him? That’s the only test. It’s the only standard. If you don’t obey, then you don’t love. Jesus‘s words – not mine.
Don’t fall for the trap of measuring your spiritual life by your emotions. People always say “follow your heart“. Scripture tells us that we are to guide our hearts. Just because you feel something, doesn’t mean that it’s accurate.
Jesus said that the greatest commandment is to love him with all your heart soul mind and strength. He didn’t leave it up to us to guess if we are loving him or not. He gave us a solid metric that we can count on: obeying Him. To obey is to love. To love is to obey.
Spark, simple, do something with it!
what is "spark"?
Its a small thing - like the flash on a spark plug that hopefully ignites something bigger to propel you forward.
