1 John 5:3…”This is love for God: to keep His commands. And His commands are not burdensome.” We were created to love God, but all of us have turned away (Romans 3:12). But God in His grace and mercy has provided a way for us to love Him in Christ. If we submit to Christ’s authority then God’s holy spirit will be in us and we’ll love His ways. Spiritual maturity brings with it a joy in obeying the truth in all of God’s word.
