About The Power of Obedience Series
Obedience is not just a reflexive performance of God’s will. It is richer than we know, and its power is known by too few. Would you be one of them?
Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, He will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.
John 14:23 AMPC
We will make our home with him. HCSB
I searched that word ‘abode’ in the Greek with excitement. I wanted to be sure that I felt it meant ‘home.’ God and the Son promise, “We will come to him and make our home with him” (HCSB).
I can’t even conceive of this. The Father and Jesus come to live permanently, to make their home on earth, with and in this one small human! All because of loving obedience…
What can that mean?
