Remain In My Love

John 15:10, NIV: If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love,
just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love.
How can we experience the love of someone we are not near—not close too? How can
we hear the voice of someone speaking to us if we are not within distance to
hear? How can we know the plans and intents of God’s heart for us, if we do not
take time to get as close to Him as we can get? To remain in His love is
something that surely we all long for. It is a place wherein we find His
comfort, peace, and the fullness of His joy. It is a place wherein we find
guidance, purpose, and understanding of the place we are at in life on this
earth. We cannot know the fullness of what He has for us, if we do not remain in
Him. And we cannot remain in Him, if we do not keep His commands. We cannot
remain in Him, if we do not draw near to Him, pray to Him, and spend adequate
time in His Word as a priority of our livelihood—seeing Him as the truest
necessity of our living.
