Sweet Aroma of Love

John 14:15 (NKJV) “If you love Me, keep My commandments.

Beloved, the greatest obedience comes from a joyful heart, yielded in love. It isn’t trying to earn anything – not favor or salvation (as though that could be earned), but rather it is given freely, as a gift – unreservedly and with joy.

When a child is young, a good parent teaches them not to lie; and if the child does lie, there are consequences. But when the child becomes an adult, no longer can the parent compel them to obedience or bring punishment for transgression. But what a sweet gift is the adult’s adherence to the parent’s precept. Truly, it is the sweet aroma of love. Just as it is when you choose to make My ways your own, and do so joyfully.
