Jesus living WITH YOU
Jesus Christ is Emmanuel, God with us. He came to be with us for ever and He will never forsake us. He will never leave us. Jesus promised those who OBEY His commands that He will come and be with them for ever.
We read in John 14:21, the words that Jesus spoke to His disciples. He said:
“He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.” 22Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, what then has happened that You are going to disclose Yourself to us and not to the world?” 23Jesus 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."
Jesus promised that He will come and LIVE with each and every person who OBEYS His commands. Him and the Father will come and make their dwelling place with such a person. Jesus Christ promised His Holy Spirit to those who accept Him and who OBEY Him.
Have you accepted Jesus Christ? Do you OBEY His commandments, His teachings, His words as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Did you REPENT? Were you baptized in water and have you received the Holy Spirit that Jesus promised to those who love Him and who obey Him?
Does Jesus Christ dwell with you and me? Have we invited Him in? Do we obey His words and does He dwell with us?
May Jesus bless you.
