Kanaan Message for Today
Our love is precious to God the Father. He values it highly. Time and again He calls us to love Him, promising to love us in return. He wants to make His home in our hearts. Yes, He wants to visit you if you love Him. What an unimaginable privilege and honour! Do not throw it away frivolously. Give God your love. You may ask how. Jesus gives you the answer: ‘He who has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me.’ This is not a matter of feelings. It is simply a matter of obeying His commandments, above all, His commandment of love — love which does not become resentful but which bears and endures all things. Those who strive daily to keep His commandments will experience the Father’s love most (John 14:21, 1 Corinthians 13).
