What Does It Really Say?

And while we're on the subject of love (see the last two posts):

Five times in two chapters, the Lord Jesus repeats Himself -- if not verbatim, then in principle: If you say you love Me, then keep my commandments (John 14:21, 14:23, 14:31, 15:14, 13:17).

I'm sure He said it so often to make the point both unmistakable and unmissable.

So, if I say I love God, but I don't keep His commandments, nor am I grieved or repentent when I do not -- then what does that realy say about my love for Him?
