Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 243

  1. “If you love me, you will obey what I command” (John 14:15).

Simple evidence. To love a leader is to follow their direction and fulfill their commands. Love between Master and servant cannot be demonstrated satisfactorily with words. Only when we obey do we demonstrate our real commitment. Now other relationships can show love via gifts or sentiment, but when you follow someone, you can only demonstrate your allegiance by following. That surely doesn’t mean there is no place for words, for expressions of praise, for communicating passion. But these should be added to obedience in the form of attitude–one that demonstrates we are fully devoted to Him in our obedience.
