The Root of the Problem: Chapter 19 – Lack of Love for God (Excerpt)

The Root of the Problem (cover)Many people will say that they love God. But John says, “Let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth” (1 John 3:18). Claiming to love God, without the deeds to back it up, is meaningless.

“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” (John 14:15).

“For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome” (1 John 5:3).

If we love God, we must obey Him. Therefore, we must also give up sin (disobedience). John says His commandments are “not burdensome” – we can do it. But we must love Him enough that we are willing to do so.
