How we abide in God’s love

This is Christ speaking to his disciples in the upper room at the time that he also instituted the sacrament.
If ye keep my commandments,
ye shall abide in my love;
even as I have kept my Father’s commandments,
and abide in his love.
(John 15:10)
Christ and the Father may love us unconditionally, but for us to feel that and know it, we have to keep the commandments.  If we don’t keep the commandments, we disconnect ourselves from that love, as if a light were to disconnect itself from the electrical socket.  The electricity is still available, it is just not flowing through the light.

I love this scripture and the truth it contains.

Today let’s try a little harder to keep the commandments so that we can feel that love.
