THE LOVE THAT LEADS TO DIVINE COMMUNION!
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him (John 14:23).
There is a love that leads to divine communion; and this is the love of God that is being expressed through total obedience to His Word. You can never claim to love God when you fail to obey His Word of life. The Bible says in the opening text that Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.”
Any Christian who wants to have a divine communion with God should learn to keep His commandments. No wonder Jesus Christ said in John 14:21, “He who has my commandments and keep 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.” Therefore, love is a basic requirement for your divine communion in Christ Jesus.
Furthermore, love that is devoid of obedience is counterfeit and not genuine. You can never claim to love God when you fail to obey His Word. That is why the Bible says in John 15:10, “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.” It is Christ’s love and obedience to God’s Word that leads one into a divine communion with Him.
Daily Tip: The love that is fulfilled and leads one into divine communion is the love that is expressed through total obedience to God’s Word. Shalom!
Golden Text: As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love (John 15:9).
