FAN YOUR LOVE EMBERS
(Do The Word And Prove Your Love)
TO THE BIBLE
John 14:15 MSG “If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you.”
Have you ever sat to wonder about the Lord Jesus Christ: who He is, what He’s done, and what He’s given to you? He’s the crown-jewel of heaven, and the joy of the Father’s heart. Everything in the universe is abuzz with Jesus! If you ever want to know who God the Father is and discover His undying love foryou, all you need to do is to look at Jesus: He’s the total embodiment and fullest revelation of God’s love!
The more you know Jesus, the deeper you fall in love with Him. Your heart is kept aflame with Him as you know Him, and you should always fan the embers of your love for Him. Let your love and commitment to Him be revealed in the way you talk, the things you do, and in the way you conduct your life! Love Him passionately, even beyond talking and singing about Him. Make Him your eternal focus, for nothing else will ever satisfy.
Notice again that Jesus didn’t say, “If you love me, sing to me,” rather He said, “If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you.” The proof of your love for Him is in doing what He’s told you to do. The question now is, “Do you know what He said?” Here’s why you must study and meditate on the Scriptures continually. It’s a call for you to a lifestyle of true, heartfelt fellowship with Him. Through that fellowship, the Holy Spirit will flood your heart with the revelation of Jesus—the living Word—so you can know and keep His Word, and thus prove your love for Him.
2 Corinthians 5:14
For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
:15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of your Son Jesus Christ, who died in my place. He’s the joy of my heart, my fulfilment and peace, and my everlasting delight! I testify today to the Lordship of Jesus, and the dominion of His Word over my life, which is for your glory! Amen.
