“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” – John 14:21 (KJV)
God knows how to find those who love Him—those who love Him are those who keep His commandments. Keeping His commandments means living in obedience to them.
Beloved, all the commandments of God have been simplified by our Lord Jesus Christ; He said to love God with all your heart, soul, and might and love your neighbor as yourself (Luke 10:27). If you are doing these things, it is proof that you love Jesus Christ, and the Father will encourage you more than those who don’t do His commandments.
Beloved, one very vital thing He adds to the opening scripture is that He will manifest Himself to you. He will make Himself available for you to see so that your faith can be strengthened.
Imagine Jesus coming to visit you; how awesome will that be! If you want to enjoy that aspect of the relationship you have with Him, then begin to keep His commandment and love Him (John 14:15). Praise the Lord!
Prayer Point: My dear Lord Jesus Christ, thank You for the unconditional love You have for me. I promise to also love You and my fellow human beings.
Please remind me to always keep this promise, especially in difficult times, so that You can continually manifest Yourself to me. Amen!
