Love doesn't come from obedience.
Obedience comes from love.
We must get rid of our moralistic life that we pursue in order to gain love, favor and acceptance from God. We need to know the reality that we are loved, favored and accepted because of Christ. When we grasp our sin and the reality of God's undeserving disposition towards us we will obey and give our life up to make His name known.
