“Those who love Me will keep My word, and My Father will love them, and We will come to them and make Our home with them.”
– John 14:23
Wow, what a promise! If I truly believe in Jesus and that He is the Son of God, then I will believe in His promise. What glorious encouragement Jesus gives me to love Him and to keep His word!
And this is where those fundamental questions arise: Do I believe? Do I want Jesus to take over my life? Do I want to do His will? If the answer is a resounding “YES!” for all three questions, then I must truly love Him, which means…that I have allowed Him to live in me. What a grace!
O Lord, my God,
unworthy as I am of Your love,
I bow before You and seek Your forgiveness.
Lord, I declare my love for You;
I declare my resolve to obey Your commands
and to do Your will.
Lord, I so much want to have You in my heart.
Send Your Holy Spirit – the Divine Spirit of Light and Love, the Giver of Life –
to reign in me, to take over and strengthen my resolve,
and to keep me on the right path.
Come Holy Spirit, come.
