Worshipping From the Secret Place

Today, we have a lot of fake everything. We have a lot of imitators. We have a lot of people who are not truthful about things. And, we don’t want to be caught in that. We want to be able to say, “I love Jesus!” But, then have some evidence!

John 14:21 KJV, “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

First, it says, “He that has my commandments and keeps them…” That’s the first evidence. Your obedience to Jesus and every command that He gives is the evidence that you really love Him. Your obedience to Him is what brings the evidence that you really do love Him. If He’s Lord, if He’s King of Kings, there must be evidence. There must be something that causes you to align yourself with your words and say, “I obey my King.”

The other one is, and He says it so well, “I will love him and will manifest myself to him.”  So, the second evidence is a manifestation of His presence in your life. So, there are two simple things. I’m not going to be complicated today. There are two simple things that are the evidences that you really do love Jesus. You said, when I asked the question if you love Jesus, and the answer was, “Absolutely Yes! I love Jesus.” Here are two evidences that your statement is true.

It’d be better for you to find out that your statement isn’t true today, than to wait until you leave, because you won’t have any court to back you up. You’ll be guilty as charged! Can you say, “Lord, I hear you!”

The second one says that you manifest His presence in your life. Manifest means to shine or to break forth. To become an instrument or a channel that radiates Christ’s presence. When God is really in your life, there’s evidence that something is different about you.

We will continue on Friday! Have a great week!
