I saw this quote earlier today and it resonated with me:
“The daily experience of Christ’s love is linked to our obedience to Him. It is not that His love is conditioned on our obedience. That would be legalism. But our experience of His love is dependent upon our obedience.” ~ Jerry Bridges ~
How can I better obey Christ today?
By keeping my focus. My priorities. My temper…Thinking of Christ as I go about my day. Making certain I spend plenty of time with Him. Not allowing seemingly urgent things to crowd Him out. Remembering Him as I do the ordinary things. Doing even the ordinary and the mundane with a heart full of love and a desire to please Him.
“Lord, do Thou turn me all into love, and all my love into obedience, and let my obedience be without interruption” ~ Amy Carmichael ~
