John 15:10-11 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
Do not waste time bothering whether you 'love' your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him. -C.S. Lewis
You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings. -Pearl Buck
Now look at John 14:23-24. It says that if we love God, we will obey Him. The reward here is that God will come and be with us.
John 14:23-24 Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching.My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.
