3. Read John 15:10, 11. What is one thing that will happen if we keep Jesus' commands?
 We will be miserable.
 We will have lots of money.
 We will stay in Jesus' love.

   If you want to feel “full joy” in life, then keep the commandments. They apply in every culture and offer the perfect guide to happy living. That’s because they actually show us what God is like!
   Jesus loves you so much that He invites you to follow a lifestyle that results in deep, inner happiness. This lifestyle comes only through a friendship with Jesus.
4. Read 2 Peter 1:2-4. Then answer this question.
True or False: Jesus will give us the power to do what's right.
 True
 False

   Once again, Jesus is the answer! When we totally trust Jesus with everything, by faith we can receive power from Him to obey the law. By obeying the law, we show our love for Jesus (John 14:15).
   The bottom line is this: Jesus loves you too much to sit at a distance and watch you stumble unhappily through life and miss the chance to live with Him forever. So He provided guidelines that will result in a life of complete joy and perfect love—if you follow them.
   This doesn’t mean bad things will never happen, but it does mean we’ll avoid the pain that comes from making wrong choices. The proof of Jesus’ love came at the cross where He died for your sin. In this ultimate act of love, He offers to “make you complete in every good work to do His will” (Hebrews 13:21). Doesn’t this cause you to want to follow Jesus?
