Verse of the Day

John 14:23
Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.
Reflections On The Scripture: Beloved, it is crucial to grasp Jesus' words in this powerful verse. Christ's proclamation is not about compliance out of fear or obligation. Instead, it's about a love-driven obedience that blossoms from knowing Him and understanding His deep love for us. This love then manifests as obedience to His teachings. The cornerstone is the act of love inherent in keeping His word, not a blind adherence to a set of rules. It becomes a reflection of our love for Him and His Father. And from there, the most wonderful promise emerges. For those who love Him, they will be met with even more love from the Father, and Christ himself, and they will reside with us, making their abode in our hearts. This is an intimate relationship enriched by affection, not a distant, fear-driven obedience. So let's strive to live this love daily, obeying His words, not because we have to, but because our love for Him compels us.
