Abide in His love


Jesus said, "abide in my love," that My joy may remain in you. In John 15:11 he says, "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full."

How you will abide in His love

He said, "if you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love." John 15:10.

  • Keep His commandments and you will abide in His love.

He said, "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you." John 15:12-14.

Love the brotherhood in the same way he has loved his Church; be ready to lay down your life for them, and when you do this you will abide in His love and become His friends.

In John 13:17 He said; "If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them."

What things?

He said, "For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you" John 13:15.

What had he done?

He had "rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded" John 13:4-5.

This didn’t come from nowhere, but many good things he had done for them, and when He knew these were his seed and his fruit who would further grow his work, and "that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end" John 13:1. This he did because he cared so much for them, he loved them and could do anything for them.

He said, "No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another" John 15:15-17.

Here is love; you did not choose Him, but He chose you, He first loved you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain.

He said abide in My love, and you will be My friends, if you would love one another, and keep my word, you’re My friends, and "all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you."

Look, when you bear fruit, fruit that remain, He says "whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you."

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
