Davidisms - Love Can Be an Emotion. But It's Always In Motion.

Jesus said that if you love him, you’ll obey his commandments (John 14:15).


Love is expressed by what you do. It’s an action. In motion.


However, our American culture has reduced love to a mere emotion. What and how we feel. The problem is that emotions come and go. Ebb and flow. They’re up and down. Constantly changing. Most often in alignment with our circumstances. We may feel love one day. But the next day we don’t.


That’s why love does. It acts. It obeys - especially for the beloved. No matter what we may be feeling that day.


Therefore, if you love Jesus, you will feel emotion. His deep unconditional love for you. And your love for him. Yes, that’s important!


But real love for him obeys his commandments. What he desires for your life. No matter what emotion you may be feeling.


Love can be an emotion. But it’s always in motion.


Action. Doing. Obedience. For others.


As Jesus has done for us.
