Read John 14:22-31
Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.” – John 14:23 (NLT)
Jesus lived among us to show us what love and service look like, so that we would have a model for how to obey His commands. Even so, we cannot obey on our own, but we can when strengthened by the Holy Spirit. Like Jesus, our love and service may be accepted or rejected by the recipients; nevertheless, love and service remains our calling, our testament to the power of the Good News.
