Do You Love Jesus?
21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”
John 14:21 (NKJV)
24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
John 14:23-24 (NKJV)
Jesus is the Word made flesh ( John 1:14) the Word of God spoken from Genesis to Revelation. He’s the King of King’s and Lord of Lord’s. Now any Believer if asked, will tell you they love Jesus. Now that’s good , but according to Jesus, when we obey, hear and do His commandments that’s the proof that we love Him. It’s not by what we say but what we do, it’s action. It’s designed to keep us on the right road by following the signs and directions.
The Blessing of keeping His Word is that He’ll “manifest Himself to you”. For instance if you need peace, the Prince of Peace will give it to you. If you have a material need , it will be supplied through Jesus riches in Glory. Need protection from harm or danger: call on His Name and Blood and nothing shall by any means hurt you. And all this happens because we love Him and did what He said. The flip side is not doing His Word and not seeing Jesus or the Father make themselves real to you. That’s not a good place to be in, you will be all alone in the world, struggling. It’s a simple thing to obey the Lord, only our unrenewed mind and flesh would keep us from doing what He says.
Make a decision Now! Do what He says, show Him your love and His show of Love will be greater. Shalom.- BTTIZ
