Jesus said that if we love Him we will obey His commands. Do you suppose He meant ALL the time? Or just some of the time? We know the answer to this question. Hard as we might try, we cannot always obey. Here is where vision runs smack into reality. But we try.
God must have known this since the time of Adam and Eve’s sin – that mankind will always be a struggle. Yet His love is so vast that He found a way to always allow us to renew our relationship with Him. He first sent His Son so that we would know the way, the truth, and the life – as He intended us to live. Then God allowed His Son to die as the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Yes, He loves us.
Yet the story doesn’t end there, good as it is. Because He remembered that we struggle. So God sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in us, to lead and guide us. The advocate brings us back to that way, truth, and life and helps us to share the good news of Jess Christ with others. Yes indeed! He loves us.
