“I’ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love. If you remain intimately at home in my love, you’ll keep my commands. That’s what I’ve done—kept my Father’s commands and made myself at home in his love.” (John 15:9-10)
“You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you.(John 15:16)
“But remember the root command: Love one another.” (John 15:17)
“When a woman gives birth, she has a hard time, there’s no getting around it. But when the baby is born, there is joy in the birth. This new life in the world wipes out memory of the pain. The sadness you have right now is similar to that pain, but the coming joy is also similar. When I see you again, you’ll be full of joy, and it will be a joy no one can rob from you. You’ll no longer be so full of questions.” (John 16:21-23)
Today I want to share what I read in my devotional time with you!
What can we take from this amazing affirmations?!
-Jesus has LOVED US first! Before we make a move, before we were even born, through His love we were created to be His and bear good fruit, fulfilling the purpose He has for us! It is not something we achieved by an effort, but a free gift from above!
-He choses us, not the other way around! The only thing we have to do it’s to say YES! Yes to this amazing and transforming love that set us free from all bondage. We are sons and daughters of God, part and representatives of and unshakable kingdom. Halleluiah!
-All the suffering we may face in our lives for a while, can’t be compared to the amazing gifts that Jesus has for us! Nothing that we can ask or imagine can be so good as what God has already set apart for us, His children. We have an eternal gift and that will be revealed not only after this life, but it is being unveiled as we walk with Him, in intimacy!
-All that God asks from us is just to believe! “Just believe what I say to you! Embrace the truth of my promises and remain in my comforting love for you. Only when you remain in Me, you can see the changes you want for your life. I am always faithful for those who remain in my love!“
Have a blessed day!
