Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 1v7
Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of "IF".
John 14v15 "If you love me, you will obey what I command.
Jesus Christ often said the word if. It always gives us a out look of what could happen in our lives. If we love Him, we willingly will do what ever He ask. If you have faith in me I will ....... If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. If you do what I command you are my friends. The other side of that "if" is lost, confused, searching for something but not finding it. Reaching for something that does not give you a since of fulfillment and never having rest for our souls with the peace He wants so much to give us. All we have to do is love Him by having faith in Him. By showing our love for Him we will listen with faith in doing what ever He ask us to do, and we will do it with a willful and humble heart wanting to please Him. When we receive the Holy Spirit of truth we will seek what He desires and our true life we were created to live will begin. Jesus Christ will then show His ways to us through the Holy Spirit and He will make a home in us and live with us through out our life and for eternity. So for us, there should be no "if". It should always be a when or a will. We will love you by showing you we will obey. We will have faith in you and by faith we will be doing what you do. We will be asking for anything we need in prayer in your name so you can bring glory to our Father in Heaven. We will love others as you have loved us because you will be loving them through us. We will remain in your love and your joy has become our joy. We will bear fruit because we will remain in you and you will remain in us. We have humbled ourselves to believe a part from you we can do nothing. We believe that everything you learned from the Heavenly Father you have made known to us through the Holy Spirit. We believe you chose us because you knew we would love you and believe in you. We know and truly believe you appointed us to go and bear fruit that would last, and that is just what we are doing, because we love you. Because we love you we are loving each other.(Read John 14 and 15) I love everyone with the love Christ gives me for you!
