Let us consider Matt 1:18-25 where an angel appears to Joseph to direct him after he sees Mary is pregnant and is going to divorce her quietly. Joseph obeyed the angel’s direction. Obedience is a form of love.
God’s job isn’t to meet our objectives or to make us happy or comfortable. If we are Christian we should not be viewing the world or life from a how does it benefit me, myself, and I perspective.
If we love God we will allow God to lead us and interrupt our lives. We will want to obey His commandments, to follow Him.
Greatness in the kingdom of God is measured in terms of both obedience and love.
