“Love or Law? Which is more important?” goes the question. Frankly, that is the wrong question.
Love and keeping the commandments are intricately intertwined within Scripture. They are inseparable. If you love God, you will keep His commandments. If you keep His commandments, you will keep the most important one of all, which is to love God.

The above should make it quite clear that the children of God love God and keep His commandments. Not only that, but keeping His commandments are not “grievous”. That is, it is not “burdensome” (NIV).
You have to have both. Keeping His commandments (even if you could) will not get you into the Kingdom. Simply having some emotional experience will not get you into the Kingdom. God wants obedient and loving children.
That’s one big reason only a few are chosen now. Too many will go into one ditch or the other.
