There may not be a more important question to ask yourself than, “Do I love God?” In this lab, John Piper explains how you can know the answer.
Some questions to ask as you read and study:
- Do you love God? How can you tell?
- Jesus said that if we love him, we will obey him. Is love for God the same as obedience to him?
- Watch the lab. What is the test that John Piper says we can take to find out if we really love God? Is it true of you?
Principle for Bible Reading
Plan to Do, Not Just Hear
As you read the word, remember the commandment of Jesus, reiterated by James, to be doers and not merely hearers of the word (Matthew 7:24–27; James 1:22–25). Seldom does anyone wander into obedience. Often, we must take time to not only digest what we have read, but to plan for how we can practically obey God’s will.
