Read John 14:15-21


Read John 14:15-21

15 “If you love me, you will obey my commandments. 16I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, who will stay with you for ever. 17He is the Spirit who reveals the truth about God. The world cannot receive him, because it cannot see him or know him. But you know him, because he remains with you and is in you.
18 “When I go, you will not be left all alone; I will come back to you. 19In a little while the world will see me no more, but you will see me; and because I live, you also will live. 20When that day comes, you will know that I am in my Father and that you are in me, just as I am in you.
21 “Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. My Father will love those who love me; I too will love them and reveal myself to them.”


Verses 15-17 point to a spiritual reality... Everything begins with loving Jesus.  Loving Jesus results in 'obedience' to him.  Obedience opens our hearts to the presence of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit helps us to know Jesus more, and thus to love him.


Let my first motivator be my love for you Lord Jesus.
