JOHN 15:10

 

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.

 

JESUS/YESHUA IS OUR MODEL.

NOT ONLY DID HE INSTRUCT US ON HOW TO WALK IN HIS WAY, HE MODELLED IT FOR US. THEN HE LEFT HIS HOLY SPIRIT WITH US TO EMPOWER US TO RESPOND ACCORDINGLY.

HE HAS GIVEN US THE KEY.

WE JUST HAVE TO TAKE THE KEY AND UNLOCK THE DOOR.

THE KEY IS SURRENDER AND RESPOND. BY ABIDING IN WORD, WHICH, IF WE DO, WE WILL KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS (WHICH INCLUDES WHATEVER HE HAS TOLD US TO DO INDIVIDUALLY, AS WELL AS IN HIS WORD), THEREBY ABIDING IN HIS LOVE. 

NOTICE HOW CYCLICAL THIS IS. JUST AS HE ABODE IN THE FATHER’S LOVE, AND THEREBY FULFILLED THE FATHER’S COMMANDMENTS, SO ALSO IF WE APPRECIATE, AND FOLLOW WHAT HE DID WITH THE FATHER, AND DO LIKEWISE WITH WHAT JESUS/YESHUA HAS SHOWN US, SO ALSO WILL WE ABIDE IN HIS LOVE.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS THAT SEEMS TO ALWAYS HAVE A NEED TO MAKE WHAT IS SIMPLE COMPLEX!
