God’s Love Language –

Read Jn 14.15-31 – In his book, Gary Chapman, outlines Five Love Languages we respond to; Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Acts of Service, Gift Giving, Physical Touch. These are basic actions in which people feel love when they receive them. Usually there is a primary and a secondary that we prefer. But what is God’s love language? Which does He prefer? Well, none of these. But Jesus makes it very clear as to how we ought to love God. Loving God is to obey Him. Three times in John 14.15-31 Jesus explicitly states if we love God we will obey Him (one is His own example). Now let me be clear, God’s love for us is not contingent on us loving Him (He proved that on the cross). But our love for Him…well…that is the question, isn’t it? Do we say we love God? Does our actions match our words?
