In his commentary on 1 John, Lloyd-Jones says this on the topic of what true Christlikeness produces:
You cannot be receiving the life of Christ without become like Him. You cannot walk with God without keeping His commands. You cannot know God without immediately, automatically loving Him. Love always manifests itself by doing what the object of its love desires. (pg. 190)
