Keep my commandments! (Jn 14:15-14:15)

“If you love me,

You will keep

My commandments.”

Ἐὰν ἀγαπᾶτέ με, τὰς ἐντολὰς τὰς ἐμὰς τηρήσετε.

John uniquely indicated that Jesus said that if they loved him (Ἐὰν ἀγαπᾶτέ με), they would keep, follow, guard, or do (τὰς ἐμὰς τηρήσετε) his commandments (τὰς ἐντολὰς).  Love and belief without works were useless.  If you really loved Jesus, then you would keep his commandments, pure and simple.  The covenant binding Jesus to his followers makes demands on his followers in both love and loving action.  Do you act on your love of Jesus?
