Love & Obedience

Love & Obedience John 14:15-27 Main Point: Our love for Jesus must translate into obedience to His teachings and commands. v. 15, v. 21, v. 23 *John echoes this teaching in His letter - I John 2:3-6 ~Can’t obey without the Holy Spirit’s power – that’s why Jesus asked the Father to send Him. Have you repented and put your faith in Jesus Christ?! What are His commands and teachings? 1. Repent and believe the Good News! Mark 1:14-15 2. Love God with all your heart.
