1. Love becomes complete when we return the love that is given to us by another.  A husband who is continually loved by his wife, but never returns that love has not experienced completed love.  Completed love is when the husband and the wife share love back and forth with each other.

2. John 3:16, a verse that almost everyone knows, says that God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son so that we would not perish, but have everlasting life.  How much do you believe that God loves you? (Remember: LIGHT, LOVED, LIFE)

3. The Apostle John tells us one way that God's love toward us becomes complete is when we return His love for us by lovingly obeying His commandments: "But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him.  This is how we know we are in him." (I John 2:5)

4. We show that we love Jesus by obeying His commandments:  "Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me.  He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him." (John 14:21)

5. What is the reason we are to obey Jesus Christ?  What are some wrong reasons to obey Him?  What are some ways we are to obey Him?  According to John 14:21, what are some of the benefits that will come from obeying Jesus Christ?
