SO YOU SAY YOU LOVE JESUS; YOU SAY YOU READ THE BIBLE; OKAY GOOD, BUT HERE IS WHAT REAL LOVE TOWARDS JESUS IS ALL ABOUT……
Matt. 10:37. He that loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. v. 38.
Matt. 25:34. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35. For I was hungry, and you gave me food: I was thirsty, and you gave me drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in: 36 Naked, and you clothed me: I was sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came unto me. 37. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungry, and fed you? or thirsty, and gave you drink? 38. When did we see you a stranger, and took you in? or naked, and clothed you 39. Or when did we see you sick, or in prison, and came unto you? 40. And the King shall answer and say unto them, Truly I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.
Mark 9:41. Whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because you belong to Christ, truly I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

If any man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him. and make our abode with him. 28. . . .
John 15:9. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; continue you in my love.
John 16:27. The Father himself loves you, because you have loved me,
John 17:26. And I have declared unto them your name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith you hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
Acts 21:13. I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.
Cor. 5:14. The love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15. And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
Gal. 5:6. In Jesus Christ neither circumcision availes any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which works by love. 22. The fruit of the Spirit is love,
Gal. 6:14. God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
Eph. 3:17. That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18. May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19. And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Eph. 4:15. Speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

THERE ARE NOT DOZENS UPON DOZENS OF SCRIPTURES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT ABOUT WHAT IT IS TO LOVE CHRIST JESUS, FOR CHRIST JESUS IS ONE WITH THE FATHER. YOU CAN NOT LOVE ONE AND NOT LOVE THE OTHER. THE FATHER AND THE SON ARE ONE IN LOVE AND ALL THINGS.
HENCE THE SCRIPTURES CONCERNING LOVE TO THE FATHER, MUST BE APPLIED TO THE SON ALSO. JESUS TAUGHT WHAT THE FATHER COMMISSIONED HIM TO TEACH.
PHILIP ASKED JESUS TO SHOW THEM THE FATHER; JESUS REPLIED:
“HAVE I BEEN SO LONG WITH YOU, AND YOU HAVE NOT KNOWN ME, PHILIP? HE THAT HAS SEEN ME HAS SEEN THE FATHER; SO WHY DO YOU SAY, SHOW US THE FATHER? DO YOU NOT BELIEVE I AM IN THE FATHER AND THE FATHER IN ME? THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU, I SPEAK NOT OF MYSELF, BUT THE FATHER THAT DWELLS IN ME HE DOES THE WORK” (JOHN 14:8-10).
IT WAS PROPHESIED THAT “HE” THE MESSIAH WOULD COME AND MAGNIFY THE LAW - NOT DIMINISH IT [ISA. 42:21]. READING MATTHEW 5, 6, 7. PROVES THAT INDEED IT WAS SO.
NONE OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE EVER ABOLISHED OR CHANGED. JESUS UPHELP EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM, INCLUDING THE SABBATH COMMANDMENT, AND SHOWED IN MANY WAYS HOW TO OBSERVE IT.
SO AGAIN READING THE SCRIPTURES ON HOW TO LOVE GOD, APPLIES ALSO TO LOVING JESUS, FOR AS JESUS SAID, “I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.”
