But the world must know that I love the Father. So I do exactly what the Father told me to do. “Come now, let’s go.” John 14:31 ERV

Love isn’t love until proven. However, love cannot be proven except it’s expressed. Our text reveals this.

Beloved, the expression of love must be done with/through a language. There are 5 ways of expressing/proving love, which is also called the 5 languages of love, obedience is the only attitude that’s bilingual –giving of gifts, and act of service. When you’re obedient, you’re giving a gift, as well as rendering an act of service to the one you’re obeying. Little wonder Jesus chose obedience as the only proof/expression/language of love God understands. Knowing the command is a prerequisite for obeying it, while obeying the command is the only proof of loving Him and guarantee for receiving His love. When our love is proven through obedience, He proves His through companionship or quality time. Whoever He’s with, absolutely lacks nothing good, everything is available simply by asking!

Grace upon grace!
