Love

1 John 5:3-5
In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
Commentary
God has desired the obedience of His people since the beginning. Instructions were given to Adam and Eve, the stone tablets were made to guide Israel in how to live and served as the foundation for the creation of “the law”. In all this, Jesus comes as the fulfillment of the law. Obedience continues to be commanded, as our direction lies through Christ alone. This is a beautiful verse that links together obedience and the victory to overcome the world through Jesus. In believing in Christ, we become obedient to God and communicate our love for Him.
