And that’s because of a wrong heart and wrong desire issue:
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
Matthew 22:37-40 ESV
On these two commandments depend all the law.
On this one thing — love — depends all the law.
Godly, upright, just, merciful, sacrificial and selfless LOVE.
Men do not obey because they do not love.
Men do not love because the Holy Spirit of God is not in them.
Would you choose love, friend?
Would you choose loving arms spread wide upon a cross so that you can have a new heart, a new spirit, new desires in you that flow from a new source greater than self?
Will you repent from your own ways to believe and receive Christ in you?
Will you love?
Then you will obey.
