What is not done out of the Love of God is meaningless. In other words, motive is everything in the eyes of God.
We are called to be obedient to God’s Word, yet unwilling obedience is unacceptable to Him. What He wants is obedience that has its basis in our Love for Him.
Even faith only works by Love (God’s love).
For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. Galatians 5:6 KJV
The promises available through faith are only to thosr who are willing as well as obedient.
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: Isaiah 1:19 KJV
