Jesus replied, “Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place.” (John 14:23)
Loving Jesus empowers you to obey His word.
I say again (with emphasis this time) Loving Jesus empowers you to obey His word.
Relationships gravitate around love, and love and relationship depend on constant interrelation and interaction - husband and wife, siblings, friends and family, colleagues and peers.
And all of these revolve around one basic principle (as my wife constantly reminds me), "You need to stop talking now and just listen!"
Love begins with a mental act of volition – a statement of the will that recognises our neediness and like a flower, our requirement to open up.
This action then reaches outward and upwards like a plume of smoke from the wreckage of our lives and whispers through the pieces of a damaged heart: “I need you…!”
By inviting GOD into your life, that simple act of giving over your broken and damaged ‘self’ begins a cycle of events that will beautifully, wholly and systematically heal and transform the ‘you’ that you've carefully hidden behind - as well as everything in and around you ‘forever!’
Some things will be perfectly restored, and some things will be permanently discarded – and all for the better!
And it all begins with accepting the invitation to a Relationship of LOVE.
