Day Two

John 14:21 The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]

Jesus said IF we love Him we will keep His commands.  He is promising that if we obey Him, He will show up in our lives -He will make Himself real to us.

He is actually plainly saying if you and I come into agreement with Him then He will make happen all He has promised to us.

John 14:23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.

Jesus said the Father will love us when we keep His Word, and that They will come and make Their home in us!  They will make Their home in us which means They will be with us always.  

I think it is a privilege to have God manifest Himself to me.  I personally love that God speaks to me and that He shows Himself to me.  I love that He shows me things to come, that He teaches me, counsels me, strengthens me and that He is my stand by for whatever my need!  God manifesting Himself to me in my life— to me, is an expression of His love and kindness to me.  Him caring enough for me to correct me so He can do good in my life.
