We can tell if someone truly loves us by their actions, as well as what they say.
If we truly love someone, what we do for them is genuine, not hard to do, and comes from the heart. But when we say we love someone and find it a burden to do something for them, is it really love? Or is it something we do just for our own gain? To get what we want? For self — selfish reasons?
We can’t see a person’s heart like God does. And we can’t trick God into thinking we genuinely love him to get what we want. He knows if we’re trying to use him. He knows our hearts better than we do. Therefore, He knows if we love him or not, and how much we love him.
Those who love God has the mind of God, and will do for him out of love.
So ask yourself, do you love God? What do your actions say?
John 14:15 (KJV) – if ye love me, keep my commandments.
