Short note – Our love, measured by our obedience

We don’t realize how personally our Father loves us, and how personally the Savior has sacrificed for us. We think we do. We make a great deal about it.

But you see it in our actions. Christ said “He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me.” And that is just about as perfect a statement as you could want. He doesn’t say “some people love me and obey, but others still love me and just aren’t as obedient”. Instead he says that he knows and measures our love by our obedience.
