John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
We always tell people whom we love that they need to see in our hearts how much we love them. I state something which needs to be believed without any confirmation.
In today’s message we see Jesus did not say that we need to see in His heart to see His love for the Father. He states by His obedience we will see His love for the Father.
Fruits of the Holy Spirit are not conceptual things that are abstract, that need to be accepted at face value. All Fruits of the Spirit like love, faith, wisdom, slow to anger etc. are things that manifest. They are the light which shines in us and manifest us as children and sons of God.
If we love God them we need to manifest that love by our obedience. If we rebel against God by not abiding in Him, then can we say we love Him?
Lord You are God and You are Spirit. The Heavens are your abode and they are spirit places yet they are more real than the creation we live in. Lord we pray we do not fool ourselves and others by saying we are Christians while we do not manifest Christ in us. We pray the Fruits of the Spirit are manifested as the light which overcomes the darkness…
This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
James 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
