Judas asked Jesus a question…
Judas (not Iscariot) *said to Him, “Lord, what then has happened that You are going to disclose Yourself to us and not to the world?”
Jesus began His reply…
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 abode with him.
Keep His Word
Father will love such one.
We…Father/Son/Spirit…will come to him and make Our abode 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.
Do not love Jesus?
Does not keep His Words.
Love of Jesus and keeping of His Word go together.
One can not “love Jesus” while denying His Word…not keeping His Word.
Jesus then tells them that His Words are coming from Father Who sent Him.
He was disclosing Himself to His disciples.
He has disclosed Himself to us.
Do we believe?
Do we obey?
