Read John 14 today.

This chapter includes part of Jesus’ conversation with His disciples the night before His arrest. Verses 15-21 include some words we often overlook. Jesus clearly connected love for Him with obedience of His commandments. Love for Jesus is not freedom to do anything we want. Love for Jesus includes submitting our desires to His commandments.
Do you know the commandments of Jesus? Have you incorporated being obedient to them into your life?
John 14:15-21 NLT
“If you love me, obey my commandments. [16] And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. [17] He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. [18] No, I will not abandon you as orphans-I will come to you. [19] Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live. [20] When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. [21] Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”
