II Kings 17:24-18:12, II Chronicles 29-30, I John 5
This is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome. I John 5:3
God commanded the celebration of the Passover in the Old Testament. King Hezekiah restored that great celebration, though some rejected his invitation (II Chr.30:10). I think he had the right approach. We keep God’s commands, not out of fear, but from love. I love God and find that when I live in obedience—I find joy not some burden. How do we confuse this? How do we come to think that we “have to” listen to God? May you find joy and blessing today in living out God’s will for you.
