Check Out the Commands of Christ

By Inside Out with Courtnaye Remember when Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commands.” It’s found in John 14:15. But before we dive into what those commands are, remember that the Bible teaches us in 1 John 5:3, “Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome.” They are not burdensome. So, what you are about to check out is not legalistic, man-made rules, but pulled from the word of God, actually from the mouth of Jesus Christ, [...]

The angle that I’m taking is really all about taking an intentional pause from all of the busyness and realizing that people whom you love, need to feel your love.
