Abide in His love

John 15:9-10 says, “As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 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.”
While many believe that a blind faith in Jesus is all that is necessary to abide in His love, the Bible is clear many times over that we must obey Him. His commandments are there for a reason and without obedience to His commands we cannot abide in His love. The previous few verses teach this same principle with the analogy of the vine and branches. In order to abide in Him we must bear fruit. If we don’t bear fruit we will be cut off from the vine and burned.
