We serve an awesome God. He is one who fulfills His Word and is faithful in all His ways. In the last sunrise, we established that the sons of God are made the righteousness of God; and by this, they can bring the Father much glory.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
This is the secret to bringing glory to the Father; we must know, understand, and keep the commandments of God. So in other words, Jesus is saying only those who keep His commandments love Him. He continues to say that those who love Him will be loved both by Him and His Father. Can you guess how that love is demonstrated?
“And will manifest myself to him”.
God is going to share His secrets with those that love Him. This was true even for Jesus and His relationship with the Father. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. (John 5:20)
Some saints look at the life of Christ and think that they are not able to do what He did. In actuality, we fail to see that we have received His life at salvation. The scripture declares that as He is so are we in this world. It is not Christ who is at fault when we do not live sinless, rather, it is our lack of agreement with His Word.
Jesus lived 33 1/2 years sinless because He took pleasure in obeying God. When situations were set before Him, His submission and obedience to the Word were revealed by His responses. He could easily love, forgive and resist the temptations of the devil because He obeyed God's Word.
In order for us to walk in righteousness we must agree with God in all things. When we agree with Him, our emotions will always match His, thus holiness will be a delight to you.
Agree with God today!
