Holy Spirit Filled Obedience

           God is the initiator of the relationship of love. We can only respond to Him in love because He first fixed upon us as an object of His desire. He loved us and sent His Son to die for our sins so that we would respond to Him in love.
1John 4:7   Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.  8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.  10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 
           We must keep the commands of Jesus but we do not do this without His Spirit. He commands us to do His Word and in order to do His Word, He sends us His Spirit. Listen to what Jesus says in John 14.
            John 14:15   If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18   I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 

          Ask the Father, in the name of His Son to grant you His Spirit that you might have life and walk in His light.
