Jesus replied, "Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. "
These words are direct and simple. When we follow Jesus, we are pleasing God, and we are inviting Him to dwell within us. He will "make his home" with us. If I carry this thought further, I should ask if I am keeping myself as a comfortable dwelling place for God. Is everything in order? Are there things I need to clean up? We know God does not expect us to be perfect, but am I doing the best I can do?
Holy Lord, I am so thankful for your teaching and your guidance each and every day. I pray you find my heart to be comfortable and true to you. Please continue to show me the way. Amen
