Jason and I have been reading through I, II, and III John every night before we go to bed. It's a great way to end the day, and to learn more about God, ourselves, and each other. This verse really stuck out to me.
I John 5:3 - For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.
That's so big for me... Yes I know I am to keep God's commandments, but they are not burdensome?? As in, I should I always be joyful when doing what God asks of me. That's hard, I think. Serving God is not always easy, and it's not always what I want to do, but it's what God asks me to do, and not only that, but He wants to do them with a joyful heart. Yikes.
But this is why I love getting into God's word - I always find something new I need to work on in my life.
