Now this is love: that we walk according to His commands. This is the commandment – just as you heard from the beginning – that you walk in love. (TLV) – II John 1:6
Nosh: Love is made real by things we do not say. Love is felt by others when we act on the love in our hearts to bless the one(s) we love. In the same way, God feels and knows we love Him when we seek to act obediently to His commands. Being obedient is not a mindless or cold duty but an act of love.
