"If You Love Me..."

“If You Love Me…”

Blessings folk!

In His Name!

Whatever we ask in His name He will do…

John 14:13-14
“Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
“If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.

Remember Jesus is speaking to His disciples on His last night in a corporeal body.

We have seen that He has told them to…

  • let not your heart be troubled
  • believe God
  • believe Me
  • believe, believe, believe
  • ask in His name

He continued to reveal how they, and we, are to do such.

First - believe!

Then know…

John 14:15
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

If we truly love the Lord, we will keep His commandments.

Jesus is not saying that we keep commandments to attain His love.
Jesus is not saying that we love in the flesh, keep His commandments, then we are correct relationship.

When we truly love Him, the fruit will be evident.
We will keep His commandments.
We will heed His instruction.
We will abide in Him.

Jesus tells them more…

But for now, do we truly love Him?
Is such love evidenced by keeping His commandments?
