If you love someone, there is no question of disobeying the person unless it’s an impossible ask or against your personal values. A daughter would do anything for her father whom she loves dearly. A son would do the same for his mother. They are bound in love.
The believer is bound by the love of God to walk in the steps of Jesus.
“And this is love: that we walk in accordance with His instructions and are guided continually by His rules. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should [always] walk in love.” (2 John 1:6)
This is the perfect definition of love for all those who claim to believe in Jesus. Just like Jesus, who did the will of the Father, we too must desire only to do the will of the Father.
As limited beings, created out of dust, we need to live based on set principles and guidelines. Who knows us better than our Creator?
What is the expectation?
- Walking in INSTRUCTION
- Walking according to His RULES
Worldly instructions or rules are always revised and broken to suit cultures (flimsy mindsets or political or corporate devices), and unnatural behaviours.
Can we expect anything good from man?
Gods Word is perfect and true. It is unchanging. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. As believers, until we do not learn to trust in Gods Word alone, we will never see the victories promised by God in our lives.
Set your expectations on things above, for children of God are seated in Heavenly places. Love can be built only by setting our expectation on Jesus alone.
