We Obey God Out of Love, Not Fear
BY RICK WARREN — MAY 26, 2016



Jesus said in John 15:14, “You are my friends if you do what I command” (NLT, second edition). You can’t say you love Jesus and then go live like the devil. You can’t say you’re a Christian and then keep on living a self-centered life. You can’t say you’re a follower of Jesus and then pick and choose the verses that you want to listen to and ignore the ones you don’t. Jesus says you’re his friend if you obey him and his commandments.

    I'm sorry Carrie Jane, but I obey God for several reasons, the most important one is His self sacrifice of His son, His love for us, and His beautiful creations, and yes I do fear His wrath respectfully as a child that some times fears his or her parents and because I love Him. After all He created us and He could destroy us if He chose to, but He chose to sacrifice His most precious child. Think of what He could have sacrificed to save His child.... emoticon
