What happens when we Love and Obey God?

 

JESUS commands:

Luke 10:27

King James Version

27 And he answering said, 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy strength, 

and with all thy mind; 

and thy neighbour as thyself.


What happens when we love, and obey God?

The best point of reference would be Jesus.

Here's what the Lord promises:

-- We will know if the doctrine  be of God.

John 7:17

King James Version

17 If any man will do his will, 

he shall know of the doctrine, 

whether it be of God, 

or whether I speak of myself.


-- We shall be loved of the Father.

-- We shall be loved by Jesus.

-- Jesus will manifest Himself to us.

John 14:21

King James Version

21 He that hath my commandments, 

and keepeth them, 

he it is that loveth me: 

and he that loveth me 

shall be loved of my Father, 

and I will love him, 

and will manifest myself to him.


-- God will love us.

-- The Father and the Son will come unto us.

-- The Father and the Son will abode with us.

John 14:23

King James Version

23 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

If a man love me, 

he will keep my words: 

and my Father will love him, 

and we will come unto him, 

and make our abode with him.


-- We become friends of Jesus.

John 15:14

King James Version

14 Ye are my friends

if ye do whatsoever I command you.


-- Whatever we ask of the Father in Jesus' name, God will give us.

John 15:16

King James Version

16 Ye have not chosen me, 

but I have chosen you, 

and ordained you, 

that ye should go and bring forth fruit, 

and that your fruit should remain: 

that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father 

in my name, 

he may give it you.


-- We will be blessed.

Luke 11:28

King James Version

28 But he said, 

Yea rather, 

blessed are they 

that hear the word of God

and keep it.


-- We shall enter into the kingdom of heavaen.

Matthew 7:21

King James Version

21 Not every one that saith unto me, 

Lord, Lord, 

shall enter into the kingdom of heaven

but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
