Live Him Up
Jesus says, “…because I live, you also will live. Those who love Me will keep My word, and My Father will love them, and We will come to them and make our home with them.” John 14:19,23
When does the ‘live’ start? Right now and perpetually. Live=Love Jesus. Love Him back with everything you are, with all your concentration, and with every action and reaction. Yet, do not say that you love the Lord if you do not obey Him– obedience to the Lord is servanthood to Him. Jesus comes to say He loves you.
Remember that He teaches you how to be a loving servant when He wraps a towel around His waist and washes the feet of His followers. He teaches us that in obedience we rid ourselves of pride and self-focus. Judas Iscariot is the perfect example of pride and self-focus and Jesus Christ is the One example of perfect loving servanthood alive!
Christ and the Heavenly Father have made you Their home because They love you. Thus there are two kinds of alive: one is life blood pumped throughout your body by your heart, and spititually alive as your heart is loving our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior whose Presence is within you by the Power of the Holy Spirit. Love Him, love others. Love Him back.
