Often in our day to day lives we tend to miss out on Christ’s simple commandment to obey. I don’t know about you, but I miss out sometimes. So much of the Bible is encompassed within this one word – commandments.
It’s been sometime since The Lord taught me this. But now I feel the Holy Spirit reinforcing this again. I’m not proud to accept that I missed but I’m glad for His correction.
“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.” – John 14:23-24
In 1 John 2:4 it says, “He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”
Words displayed in action is the real life of a believer I believe.
I don’t want to be that person who only talks about how much I love the Lord but I want it to been seen through my life. I want His love to flow through me. So I guess it’s good to receive correction, right?
