Love & Obey Me - Jesus
There's an old Jewish parable about a soap-maker and a Rabbi. They're out on a walk. The soap-maker says to the Rabbi, `Rabbi, what good is religion? What good is God? Look at all the misery in the world, what good does God do?` The Rabbi said, `That is a great question.` But then he didn't answer it. They just kept walking along. They came across some kids who were playing in the dirt. The Rabbi said, `Look at those kids. You're a soap-maker and you say that soap makes people clean, but look how dirty those kids are. What good does soap do?` The soap-maker said, `Well, Rabbi, soap doesn't do any good unless you use it.`

Love & Obey Me - Jesus
Jesus says, if we hear what he says but don't do it, Jesus says that's like building a house on sand: the winds and the rain are going to knock it down. It's the same in our lives: if we don't put Jesus' words into action our lives come crashing down around us, just like my computer. We end up with stress and worry, driven crazy with lust, plagued with anger, broken relationships, a sense that life isn't about anything other than getting up, going to work, going to bed, and doing it all over and over again. But Jesus says there's a way out of that trap, and it's simple: so simple Nike even uses it as their slogan. Just Do It. That's how Jesus ends his Sermon on the Mount: ?You've heard me. Now go do it.? And if we do, Jesus says we'll be like a house that's built on a rock. We will be able to withstand anything that life throws at us if we will just do what he says to do.

Obey Me Forever
Why do so many Christians think that Jesus' command to follow Him means only until they don't want to anymore? For those that think they are still a follower of Jesus while living in unrepentant sin, I say, be prepared to hear on that day, "Depart from Me. I NEVER knew you, you who continue in sin." despite your cries of all the good you have done, miracles you participated in, churches you attended or even calling Him 'Lord, Lord'...the key is found in the letters to all seven churches...He who endures to the end will be saved. Not that you can lose what God has given....but don't assume that you have been given grace if your "apple tree" only bears lemons.

Love and Obey Me--JESUS

JESUS said, if you love me you will keep my commandments.  Thats to not commit adultry, not to fornicate, not to lie, not to steal,  you will love your neighbor as youself.  And you will take care of the poor for they will always be with us. We are to repent in the name of JESUS and the greatest and most important of all is to LOVE THE LORD GOD WITH ALL OUR HEART AND ALL OUR SOUL AND MIND AND IF we can do this greatest thing then everything else will fall into place. AMEN

THE COMMAND -LOVE & OBEY ME

We cannot say we love someone when we fail to obey the person. Likewise, there will not be obedience without love. Note that obedience is different from complying since the later might be done unwillingly.

Jesus said, if you love me, you will obey my commandments. Loving him opens our heart on how to fully and rightly obey him. the 2 but 1 command are synonymous to each other. They go ahnd in hand.

LOVE AND OBEY ME JESUS
JESUS, wants us to love one another as HE has loved us. And we should love our fellow man as we would love ourselves.  Yes, JESUS wants us to obey HIS COMMANDMENTS we say that we love HIM so if we love HIM so much how is it that we cannot do as HE ask us to do?  Loving HIM with all our heart ,  worshipping HIM and only HIM.  Not our homes ,material things,and especially not other gods.  Remember its better to give than to receive.  Letting go of this world and storing up our treasurys in HEAVEN not on earth and our rewards will be greater.

"If you love Me, you will keep My commandments." ( John 14:15)

"If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." ( John 8:31-32)

Jesus said to Simon "Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears, and wiped them with her hair. You gave Me no kiss; but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet. You did not anoint my head with oil, but she anointed My feet with perfume. For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much." ( Luke 7:44-47)

Jesus said to Simon Peter a third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, "Do you love Me?" And he said to Jesus, "Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him, "Tend My sheep." ( John 21:17)

"He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me." ( Matthew 10:37)

"Therefore every one who hears these words of Mine, and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock." ( Matthew 7:24-25)

"If any one wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it. For what will a man be profited, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul?" ( Matthew 16:24-26)
