If ye love me, keep my commandments (John 14:15).
God’s love is unconditional, because it has been proven faithful in every condition. Even in our sin, He sent Jesus to die for us. When we were lost, and disobedient, His heart still yearned for us. We can know of God’s constant love because of how He has always treated us in every situation.
But how does God know we really love Him? Is it just when we say it? Of course not – He knows when we live it! He has already demonstrated His love, which has caused us to love Him in return.
God has chosen that we keep His commandments to demonstrate our genuine and abiding love for Him.
