I was in my car at a stoplight when the Holy Spirit led me to turn to the last verse of Ephesians 6 in the Bible. I opened the Bible I keep on my car dashboard and tried to get to the verse quickly before the light turned green. I made it in time. The Holy Spirit blessed me with the verse – and inspired and compelled me to write and share a message with you on it.
“Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen. To the Ephesians written from Rome, by Tychicus.” Ephesians 6:24
THE LORD CALLS US TO LOVE HIM IN SINCERITY. In other words, IN TRUTH. The life of a good and faithful servant of Christ is about TRUE LOVE for the Lord and TRUE LOVE for others.
When it comes to TRUE LOVE for the Lord, we need to consider what Jesus has to say about those who truly love Him. True love for the Lord involves obedience! Please read the verses below and see!
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15
“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 14:23
“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.” 1 John 5:3
Friend, let us love the Lord with all our hearts – IN SINCERITY. In our TRUE LOVE for the Lord, may we obey Him! When we fall short, let us repent quickly and carry on following the Lord as His good and faithful servants who show Him TRUE LOVE with the obedience that goes hand in hand with TRUE LOVE for Him! Amen!
