John 14

Today I just wanted to share a little from my Bible reading this morning. It seems like I can read something many times but because the word of God is alive it speaks to us like we've never read it before sometimes, which is so awesome. 
It is a simple verse John 14:15 Jesus spoke saying, if you love me keep my commandments.

If you go down to John 14:23 and 24 he also says if anyone loves Me, he will keep my word; 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 fathers who sent Me.

We want to think that we can do whatever we want. God's word is simple and clear. If you love me then keep my commandments. Notice the word if... If we love God then we will keep his Commandments.  If we love Him we will keep his word.  

In today's world, there are many who do what they want to do, say what they want to say, go to church, say that they love God,  and yet do not follow his commandments. 

I want to be real. I do love God and I want to keep his word each day. I encourage you to do the same. Simple, yet profound words from Jesus. 

Today's tip is pick up your Bible and read it like you have never read it before. His word is life. It  is a living word and will speak to you right where you are.
