Do you love Jesus?  Jesus says, "If you love Me, you will obey what I command" John 14:15

You communicate with the one's you love, right?  Well, if you love Jesus, then you will communicate with him by reading HIS Words in the gospels (His communicating to you) and by talking with him through prayer (your communicating to him).

Do you love Jesus? If you don't know his Words in the gospels, then you have no interest in pleasing him. And if you have no interest in pleasing him, they you cannot please his Father, God the Most High.  If you have no interest in pleasing him, then you don't love him and you don't love God. Don't deceive yourself...

As an example of true love and communication, if your husband or wife or children have to go overseas for business or some service, will you stop loving them? Of course not! Will you want to communicate with them? Absolutely yes! How will you do that? Probably through a letter, right?  If your loved one writes to you, will you read the letter?  Of course you will, right?

Well, Jesus, God's Son had some men write a love letter to you, called the gospels. If you miss him and love him and want to see him, then you'll read his letter to you right?  Of course.  Are you regularly reading his love letter to you - HIS Words in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John?  As you read his Words, do you long to do what He says?  If you are not reading his Words, or are explaining them away, then you don't love Him.  Don't deceive yourself…
