A Great Incentive 

  

“The person who knows my commandments and keeps them, that’s who loves me. And the person who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and make myself plain to him.”
              -John 14:21 MSG


I read this verse this morning and the last part jumped off the screen at me…
“I will make myself plain to him.” 
I was like YES!! 

That’s a great incentive to know and keep His commandments! 

I know we are supposed to search after Him with everything that we have.
I have to admit sometimes, though, it is a tiring game of hide and seek trying to wade through the muck that I am sure I put there that shades Him from my view. 

It’s nice to know He promises to show us Himself in whatever way we look for him. He’s not picky. 

The promises that He gives us for keeping His commandments are pretty cool…

*long life
*a good life
*answered prayers
*protection from our enemies
*hearing us when we pray…and
*He makes Himself PLAIN to us!

Thanks for this today, Jesus. 
You’re amazing!
