More than a verse to memorize

'Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.' John 14:23
Did you hear that? My Father, who happens to be the creator of this entire universe, will love them. Wow! Who would not want to be loved by our awesome creator. To have God on our side? I know I want that.
It gets even better when Jesus says, "we will come to them and make our home with them." I can't think of anything I want more than that. To have my home with God the Father and Jesus Christ His son. In order to do that I need God the Holy Spirit to help me to obey what Jesus has taught us.
What has Jesus taught? I am going to investigate this. I know that He taught us to love God and to love people. He said that if we do this we are obeying all the other laws. I also know that my definition of love has changed. Love must be more than words and fuzzy feelings. So I think I might embark on a bit of a journey. A journey to learn what it is that Jesus told us to do.....and then if I am wise I will ask God to help me to obey Him.
