BIBLE MEDITATION:

“He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him”

(John 14:21)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

In frustration many say, “Well, there’s so much in the Bible I don’t understand.” Do you feel that way? But Mark Twain was once reported to have said, “It’s not that part of the Bible I don’t understand that gives me so much trouble; it’s the part I do understand.” I'm afraid that's true of many of us. We must learn to practice the Word of God.

There may be mysteries you don’t understand, but you can understand when the Bible says “love one another,” can’t you? If you want to learn more about the Word of God, first you must obey the part you do know. You see, when it comes to obedience, the rich will get richer. It’s not enough to recite the promises without obeying the commandments. The more you obey, the more you will learn and understand.

ACTION POINT:

Keep the Word of God. That's a simple principle, but how important it is. Jesus said, “He that keeps my commandments, he it is that loves Me, and he that loves Me shall be loved of My Father and I will manifest Myself to him.” You want Him to be real to you? Then begin to obey His Word.
