John 14:21 NLT: Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”
My beloved friend in Christ, when you ask people today if they love Jesus, they will instantly reply yes of course. But when you tell them about the things Jesus wants them to do, they will bring up excuses for not being able to do them. For example, Jesus commands that we love one another, he also said that we must reach out to the whole world and proclaim the gospel. He said we should pray always and not give up. He wants us united and not give up meeting together as his children. But the opposite of all these are what people enjoy doing.
You cannot claim to love Him and enjoy doing the opposite of what He wants you to do. Look closely at His statement, and that if you love Him, His father will love you. That is a great Hint on how to get the Holy Spirit to love and reveal Himself to you. This is seen in verse 10 of same chapter when Jesus called the Holy Spirit His father…”..my father who lives in me, does all the work”
Jesus succeeded in life because of the Holy Spirit. If you really want to be a success in life, love and obey the commands of Christ, by the help of the Holy Spirit and you will forever enjoy His love and company, hence making you a total success. I call you blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: I love you Jesus.
- Lord Jesus, have mercy on me for the many times I have failed to keep your commands.
- Precious Holy Spirit, help me to always obey the Lord’s commands, in Jesus Name. Amen.
- Please add your personal intentions.
