"Those Who Love Me"

“Those Who Love Me”

“If you love me, you will obey my commandments.” John 14:15

“Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. My Father will love those who love me; I too will love them and reveal myself to them.” John 14:21

When a person is DEEPLY, TRULY in LOVE with someone, they will try their BEST to say and do what they believe that person wants and expects of them. Jesus tells His disciples: “IF you LOVE Me, you WILL OBEY my commandments.” The type of TRUE LOVE a BORN AGAIN, TRUE BELIEVER has is manifested by their OBEDIENCE to Christ’s commands or words. I think that Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, in Matthew, chapter five, is a very good and concise example of how the TRUE BELIEVER SHOULD OBEY Him, and would TRULY be a MANFESTATION of the TRUE BELIEVER’S LOVE for His SAVIOR. It also would HELP the TRUE BELIEVER to GROW in their FAITH. And to have a CLOSER RELATIONSHIP with God and His Beloved Son.

This does NOT indicate a “WORKS” type religion, but it MANIFESTS the TRUE BELIEVER’S LOVE and OBEDIENCE to Jesus Christ and His words. The REWARD for doing this is BEING LOVED by GOD, the FATHER, and the Son. And Jesus says He will show Himself to the TRUE BELIEVER, this is done through the work of the Holy Spirit, who indwells the believer, at the time of SALVATION. SAVING FAITH is the result of OBEDIENCE, which comes from FAITH in the ONLY ONE who can give you SALVATION and an ETERNITY in Heaven.

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then you are on your way to an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. In order to change your DESTINY from HELL to HEAVEN, you MUST FOLLOW GOD’S PLAN by: TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and SHOW your LOVE for Christ, by being OBEDIENT to His commands. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
