Read: 1 John 5

Key Verse: “This is love for God: to obey His commands. And His commands are not burdensome.” 1 John 5:3

Integrity is not burdensome. Purity is not burdensome. Joy and love are not burdensome. Morality is not burdensome. Regret, deception, self-reliance, self-consumed, stinginess, unforgiveness, isolation, slander, rage is burdensome. God does not want us to try to carry heavy burdens. Jesus can lighten your load and help you travel well.

Many people say that they love God. The apostle John points out that verbal declaration only goes so far. If you watch someone’s life, you can see if they love God. Loving God is clearly seen through obedience. God simply wants us to trust Him, let Him carry our burdens, and complete the work He gives us to do. How burdensome are your days? How can they become lighter? What are some positive steps you can take?
