Express your love

God wants us to fully enjoy life!
For centuries, people have been discussing God's law, Commandments, regulations, and guidelines. Somehow, God's orders were altered, changed, misunderstood, or simply ignored. Many people have been trying to be better people by telling others what to do and what not to do. Somehow, I think they have been missing the point. God's guidelines are not about being a better person than the one next to you. God's guidelines are not about gaining favor with some folks around you or even with God Himself. He has set up His rules for the lives of His children, and in doing so, He gave them a way of expressing their love for Him. In 1 John 5:3 it says,

For our love for God means that we obey His commands. And His commands are not too hard for us.

Yes, we can express our love for God by obeying Him! His commands are about blessings, they are about a full life! In Isaiah 48:18, God says

If only you had listened to My commands! Then blessings would have flowed for you like a stream that never goes dry.
Wow, what a wonderful promise. We don't have to cry or beg for our blessings to come down; they will flow for us. God's instructions weren't given to make our lives miserable and complicated. They were given so we could enjoy life! His commands are about a life the way God had it in mind when He created us!
