Standing in Walmart checkout lane...wrestling with decades-old temptations...again.

"Do you love me?"

That question pulled me up short.

Are we obedient out of fear of consequence?
Are we obedient out of desire for reward?

Obedience out of love is best by far and what God wants from us.


Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching.
My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching.
These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.
John 14:23-24
