GC notes: what does it look like to love God?

Bishop David Kendall, Free Methodist General Conference 2015

“If we truly love God, everything else will fall into place. If we love God, we will love others.” (And, I say, love ourselves rightly.)

When we love God:

“When God is your beloved, you are sure your beloved can do no wrong.” (Total trust)

“The voice of God is something you’re eager to hear.  You can’t get enough of that voice.” (Known)

“The presence of God becomes a necessity.”  (The presence)

“The pleasure of God becomes your passion.” (our joy)

“When we profess this kind of love, people may think it sounds crazy.”

“The love God commands is the love God empowers.”
“If love is in the heart, love will flow out.”
