Theology Tidbits: John 14:21

John 14:21

“Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”
 
This is a wonderful promise, and one of my favorite verses in the Bible. I believe the way Jesus reveals Himself to us is reciprocal to the way we love Him. In other words, the more we love Him, the more of Himself He reveals to us. Love for Jesus is not a feeling, but obedience. Therefore, the degree of our love for Jesus corresponds to the degree of our obedience to Him.

We will experience Christ at the level in which we love and seek Him.
