Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him."
THOUGHTS ON TODAY'S VERSE... At many Christian funerals, the preacher emphasizes how Jesus has left to make a place ready for us to join him in heaven. Then he is going to come back for us. But just a few verses later, Jesus adds this promise. He's telling us that until we can come be with him at his place, he will come live with us here in our hearts. It all hinges on one thing: our willingness to genuinely love him — a love that leads to obedience. Not a bad deal, is it? So let's not let obedience be a forgotten word in our lifestyle!
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
