Pleasure in Submitting to God
1 John 5:3 (KJB) For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
It is not possible to profess a love for God and live in spiritual opposition to Him. Sincere love for God includes agreeing with His holy estimations. A child of God aligns himself with God rather than existing against Him.
Love for God unites hearts. Hate for things of God divides a man away from things of God.
Loving God is choosing to agree with Him. It includes a desire to keep His commandments. Living for things of God is not hard, nor grievous. It is a natural effect of loving Him.
