Scripture Quote: “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them." (John 14:21)
All of Christ's faithful followers feel His power and goodness within our hearts. We are righteous through Him, blessed children because we have received the benediction of our heavenly Father. We have become, and continue to be, His Church body, members of the heavenly family. The inheritance of eternal life is only for the children of the family of God. We who have received the blessing of our Father, are made holy, undefiled and separated from sinners, in His sight.
Believers can make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to study God’s Word - Everything we need to know to lead a godly life has been written down in Scripture for us to learn. We have been given so much as joint heirs with Jesus. Repentance and obedience are the least we can offer in return to show our gratitude and love for our Savior. We have been elevated to brothers and sisters in Christ. The most solid proof of a Christian's love and affection for Christ is if we continually strive to keep His commandments, patiently waiting to someday see his majesty face to face. In the meantime, we can live our lives as if we actually realize that we are children of the Most High God, who have been blessed beyond measure.
Today’s meditation: We owe Christ everything.
