…and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him. And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us.
I John 3:22-23
Never try to explain God until you’ve obeyed him. The only bit of God that we understand is the bit that we have obeyed.
There is no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
