God Loves You

John 17:23

I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.

Do you think God the Father loves His Son? How much do you think God loves His Son? No one would probably question the love God has for His own Son, but many question God’s love for them. Yet Jesus reveals to us in this verse that the Father loves us the same as He loves His Son Jesus. Many would question if that is true, but if you believe the words of Jesus that is exactly what He said.

Some would say they don’t feel like God loves them but that is where they make the mistake of walking by sight (feelings) and not by faith (His Word). The greatest proof God loves you is seen in the picture of Jesus on the cross for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him would have everlasting life.

The reason it is so important for us to know and believe the love God has for us is because perfect love casts out fear. If the devil can keep you in fear your faith won’t work. Settle it in your heart once and for all God loves you with an everlasting love just as He loves Jesus. Walk in the reality of that love and you can walk free from fear.

Do You Love Him

John 14:23

Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; …

God has revealed His love for us by sending Jesus to the cross. There is no doubt about how much God loves us, for that love was revealed to us when Christ bore our sin, sickness, punishment, and shame on the cross. Greater love has no one then to lay down their life for another. But how is our love for Jesus revealed. Jesus tells us in the above verse.

If we truly love Him we will keep His Word. When you talk about obedience to the Word of God today many say you are teaching legalism and bondage. But obedience to God’s Word brings liberty not bondage. Jesus said if you become one with His Word, you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

In the Old Testament they were to obey God’s Word because it was the law. In the New Testament we obey the Word of the Lord because of love. Faith works through love. Faith is acting upon and in line with the Word of God. But our faith only works when we do so because we love Him. Our love for the Lord is revealed in our obedience to Him for if we love Him, we will keep His Word.

We Can Do What Jesus Did

John 14:12

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”

Jesus said it was not Him but the Father in Him that did the works He did. In Acts 10:38 we are told that God anointed Jesus with the Holy Ghost and power who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil. Jesus did not do the miracles He did because He was God, if that were true then we would not be able to do the works He did for we are not God. Jesus most certainly is God who came in the flesh to the earth, but He did the works by the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

Upon putting our faith in Jesus Christ we can do the same works Jesus did because it is the same Holy Spirit living in us that was with Him. He has given us a Helper to do the work. Now all we have to do is have faith in Jesus, what He has said to us, and have faith in what we have seen Him do by the Holy Spirit within Him, and we too can do the same works.

He is the Head, we are the body. We are His hands and His Word spoken in this earth. Step out in faith and know that you have the same Holy Spirit in your life to do the work. For all who will put their faith in what God has available for them, they can receive through us by the Holy Spirit what He has provided.
