Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him as God loved Him. Peter answered and said, I love you like a brother. Jesus asked Peter 3 times if he loved Him like God loves. When Jesus looked at the people coming to Him to receive from Him, He was moved by compassion or love. When a pharisee asked Jesus what the greatest commandments where. Jesus replied to love God with your whole heart, mind and strength. Then He said the second is to love your neighbor as yourself. Jesus came because of the love of the Father for us. Then Jesus expressed His love for us by dying on the cross. He said that true love is one who lays down his life for another. The bond of love is stronger than anything else on this earth. You may lose interest in someone but the love that bonded you together doesn’t fade away. Your heart is the image and likeness of God. And the emotion of love is the strongest emotion that we have. And it can cause the greatest pain or joy in your life. This is how God loves us. Through the joy and pain, God doesn’t give up on us. God has bonded with each of us through love. I asked God to show me what the torment of hell is. He said it was the love of God that the people in hell couldn’t share in. Jesus said if you love Me, you will keep my commandments. He also said that the love of God is shred abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. If you have ever met Jesus, you would know what the love of God is all about and would be bonded to Him. So, I ask you a question, do you love Jesus like God loves? If you do, then keep His commandments.
