I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more; but ye see Me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in My Father, and ye in Me, and I in you. He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him. Judas saith unto Him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that Thou wilt manifest Thyself unto us, and not unto the world? Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make Our abode with him. He that loveth Me not keepeth not My sayings: and the word which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father’s which sent Me. John 14:18-24 (KJV)
Loving God the Father means loving God the Son who is Jesus the Christ who died on the cross for our sins, was buried and rose again. The resurrection is evidence of the truth Jesus spoke while walking among men on earth. May I say too, that there is absolutely no evidence that Jesus ever came as a man to any other part of the earth, except to Jerusalem, the land of Palestine.
We who are the redeemed of the Lord; redeemed through His sacrifice; have His commandments and we will keep them because we love Him. Because of the gift of the life of Jesus we love the Father and the Son. The word which we hear is from the Father.
Love God. Love one another. Do those sound familiar? That is two of them. How are we doing?
