Loving God #537

He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” (John 14:21, NKJV)

Have you ever thought about how God knows that you love Him? And, for that matter, how you know that you love God? You may be inclined to say, “God knows my heart – He knows I love Him.” Yes, God knows your heart. Yet, here Jesus said He knows a person loves Him when that person keeps His commandments. Saying we love God is not enough. The confidence of salvation in Christ and fellowship with the Father and the Son belongs to those who actually keep His commandments. With this information you can answer your own questions. Does God know that you love Him? And, how do you know you love God? We hope your answers are “yes” and “by keeping His commandments”. “Blessed are those who do His commandments” (Rev. 22:14).
