This Is Love of God


2 John 1:6: “This is love; that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, that, as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.”


This is love; that we walk after His commandments: This scripture is much like yesterdays post. We can say that we love the Lord; we can say that we love God; but if we don’t walk in obedience, it is not a true and real love. Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Then He continued, “He that has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me” (John 14:21). So we learn that if we truly love the Lord we will walk in obedience to Him and keep His commandments. “This is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous” (1 John 5:3). They will not cause us sorrow. True love of God is revealed by how we walk and live our life before Him and others.
