Scripture Nugget 11.6.2015 with Wesleyan Life Application Topic - Loving God

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him. John 14:6-7

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever.” John 14:15-=16

“They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father and I will love them and reveal myself to them” … “Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that your hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me.” John 14:21, 23b-24



Love is such an easy word to say and such a hard thing to do. Ultimately love shows itself not by declarations of affection but by the service we render to the one we profess to love, especially service that inconveniences us or that calls for sacrifice. What is true in expressions of human love is equally true of our love for God. Jesus puts the matter quite simply: If we love him, we will keep his commandments (John 14:15). This is the kind of practical Christianity that characterizes the Wesleyan tradition at it best. -Wesley Study Bible pg 1310
