Great verse…

April 23, 2015

John 14:21 English Standard Version (ESV)

21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”

I love this verse!  It reminds me that 1 John says, “His commands are not burdensome.”  I have never felt like they were a load or too difficult to follow.  I guess I have always had a desire to please God.  That doesn’t mean I have always pleased Him, in fact, there have been many times that I have disobeyed and not kept his commandments.

I do love His commands and strive to keep them, hold them, and follow them.  I cannot count the number of times that they have brought me comfort, peace, knowledge, and direction.  Most of all they have drawn me closer to God, and into a relationship with Christ.  And as I have fallen in love with the Savior, I have a deeper relationship with the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Then the relationship grows, because our Savior loves us and wants to manifest Himself to us.  He wants to show Himself, He wants to reveal Himself in a way that is generally not known.

He will bring change and difference in our lives, simply by keeping His commands.
