If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love.

Lord remind me today that love is more than a warm feeling. Your love towards me caused You to act, even to go to the Cross. My love for You should cause me to do the same and give up my life for You. Lead me in the paths of righteousness. Show me how to love You like I should, faithfully and obediently. 
AMEN

If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 
John 15:10 ESV




 Some precepts in God's Word are hard to interpret. This one is not. Jesus says that if you follow Him, then you will abide or exist in His love. Obedience, or loving Jesus, is the way you experience His love in your soul.

His Words-Wednesday Word

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you,ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 
John 15:7 ESV


"For years Gatorade has aired commercials that ask one simple question, "Is it in you?" As a sports drink Gatorade does nothing for someone unless they drink it. It can be in their gym bag or refrigerator all day, but the ad doesn't asks, "Is it near you?" it asks, "is it in you?" It has to be in you to work! The same is true for the word of God. It's not enough to keep a Bible by you or somewhere in the house. The Word has to be in you for you to experience God's presence in your life. So...

IS IT IN YOU???"
