"If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love." John 15:10
First, let me make it abundantly clear that Christ's love for us is eternal and bestowed upon us by grace and there's nothing we can do to force Him to love us.
With that said, Jesus tells us that we can enjoy His individual loving countenance just as He enjoyed it with His Father. Do you know the chief principle that kept Jesus in the Father's highest grace?
It was His unrelenting devotion to God's commandments. His diehard spiritual observation of God's law was the reason why God spoke to Him in the presence of others and was able to do spectacular miracles.
Adhering to God's commandments is invaluable when it comes to improving life. But it shouldn't be obeyed mechanically. Instead, they should be followed in the spirit of love.
Jesus once pointed out that doing charitable work on the Sabbath was acceptable to God because it benefits others. Jesus highlights that love is the most important factor.
By teaching the spiritual observation of the law rather than mechanically, a new concept was introduced.
The greatest value we receive from God comes from honoring God through the spiritual observation of His laws. It is in the realm of the soul we receive treasure beyond description that arouses intellect, imagination, and creativity. This is how God honors those who show themselves to be spiritually developed in the meditation of His law.
It is this spiritual honor that Jesus describes as abiding in God's love from which we receive from God to do the impossible.
Just like Jesus constantly operated in the Father's realm, so can you, but you have to cultivate your mind with His commandments. That's how more grace and power is endowed to you.
Building your mind with commandments designed for you good deliver more life and is priceless. The highest honor and integrity you can show God is your love and willingness. But without love, there is no value.
Look into your heart and love God, then God will reward you handsomely as you shape your mind and life around His laws. His presence will guide you to think, speak, and act according to His will from above.
What is the question all of us ask? How can I be better? How can I improve? That question is at the front of everyone's mind whom I've met. They want to change this, or that. They want to improve. They want something better. They want more of God.
The question indicates people intuitively know that there's a higher level of living, and they want it.
Read, listen, and carefully meditate on every commandment from Jesus and see if you don't find the answer to this important question. You and every person on the planet must solve this question of you are to expect more quality from life.
Your journey through life may have not yielded the gains you hoped for so far. Maybe you expected a better life than what you have now. Let me assure you, no matter where you are, Jesus is delivering to you today, right now, the greatest instruction you'll ever receive.
You can operate with greater power from God if you follow in His footsteps and make God's law your own. Without God's law to guide how you think, you are limited. But with the commandments of Jesus, the restraints are dismantled.
With God's laws planted in your mind problems turn to opportunities, challenges turn to possibilities, and in obstacles, you'll see advantages. I speak from experience. I've seen my own life accelerate in directions I once thought difficult.
When you leave old thinking behind and adopt a foundation based on God's law, your mind opens to the fact that God is giving you His best and therefore you need to give your best at everything you do.
Then your mind blazes a trail into your best future from morning to night. That's how you become more like Jesus and perform in ways you once thought was impossible. That's how you do more with your time, become more productive, produce more results, help more people, win more often, expand your talents, live in unseen faith, and possess more control over yourself. That's how you will become a life-builder.
How you master the commandments in mind and action determines how far you go in service to God and man. That's why it's critically important that you listen to them throughout the day, read them quietly in the morning, and adopt each one as your own.
The steady and continuous meditation of each commandment and their loving application yields greater crops for you each year.
If willingly spend a few minutes each day concentrating, listening, and meditating on the commandments fo Jesus, wasted motion disappears. Each new thought and action you take will count one hundred percent toward your progress.
It's about knowing how to think with the laws that govern our creation and then taking action with the creative force that supports them, God. That alone is how you win at the inner game of life and move forward.
The commandments of Jesus teaches you how to think. Then you can apply the new method of thinking to your own daily life every day.
So when Jesus said, "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love." to His audience he meant you can live free from the shackles of a limited world and in God's unlimited power.
You just need to be shown the way, and He did it through the gospels, and now it's summarized in this easy guide. Do you want more quality, control, God? Jesus is giving a way out to a more prosperous future, and prosperity of all type.
