He who has My commandments and keeps them..."
John 14:21: “He who has My commandments and keeps 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.”
Open my understanding, Lord Jesus: let me see your commandments. Let me love your commandments. Let me delight to do your will, Lord, Ps. 40:8. May love move me to obedience, John
May I ever remember your love and your obedience, Lord Jesus. May love for you fill my heart now, Lord, so I may receive your commandments. Amen.
· Love for God’s Word and delight in doing God’s will belong together, Ps. 40:8: “I delight to do Your will, O my God, And Your law is within my heart.” If we are not drawn to God’s Word, we must stir up ourselves and cry out to God.
· Note from John 14:21 [quoted in the beginning]: Jesus reveals Himself to us when we obey His commandments. O Lord, may my heart love to obey your Word.
· We have fellowship with the Father and the Son when we obey the Word, John 14:23, “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.”' May my heart ever long for fellowship with you, O God.
