I can show love for Jesus Christ by obeying the commandments

Talk Submitted By: Kimberly Howell, Carmel, IN

Commandments are the laws or rules given to us by Heavenly Father. Obeying his commandments is the only way we will be able to live with him again. Heavenly Father loves us so much that he sent his only begotten son to Earth to atone for our sins and be our perfect example of how to keep his ommandments.

Deuteronomy 28:9

The Lord shall establish thee an aholy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways.

The scriptures contain many examples of how Jesus taught us to walk in his father’s ways. When Jesus showed kindness to the woman at the well he showed how we should love our neighbor. Jesus always obeyed and respected his parents, this shows us the importance of honoring our father and mother. By driving the sellers and money changers out of the temple, Jesus showed respect for Heavenly Father and for the sacredness of his house, this taught us how we should have no other gods before him. Keeping the commandments and following his example is the best way we can show Jesus how much we love him. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
