Friday, January 29

We love, because he first loved us.—1 John 4:19.


Before studying with Jehovah’s Witnesses, you may have formed a deep appreciation for the Bible. And you may have developed a love for Jesus. Now that you have come to know Jehovah’s Witnesses, you might love to associate with them. But loving those good things will not necessarily make you want to dedicate yourself to Jehovah and get baptized. The primary motivation that will lead you to baptism is love for Jehovah God himself. When you love Jehovah more than all else, you will not let anything or anyone prevent you from serving him. You could view love for Jehovah as both the gateway to baptism and the guardrail that helps you stay on the path of serving God. Jesus said that we must love Jehovah with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength. (Mark 12:30) How can you learn to love and respect Jehovah that deeply? Reflecting on Jehovah’s love for us moves us to love him in return. w20.03 4 ¶4-5

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

It is amazing to think that Jehovah created love. The very concept of love originated with Him. We are privileged to be created with that part of his creation and we should use it constantly. Love for Jehovah and mankind should move a person to be baptized.


Studying without getting baptized is like a First Responder getting trained to help people in an emergency but never taking the final test to get qualified.
