When it comes to a healthy relationship with God, obedience is key. Remaining faithful to God and all He has asked of us makes all the difference in how we deal with this life. While our life was never promised to be perfect, God promised He would always love us. In John 15:10 Jesus says to His disciples, If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love. Remaining in “His love” does not mean God will keep loving us, because He always does. It means we will remain protected by His will and hedge of protection over us. Separation from God should never be an alternative because the consequences are eternal.
