God Wants Good Things For You

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy maybe be in you, and that your joy may be full.” -John 15:9-11

See. Jesus really likes us and is for us. He wants us to have joy. He tells us how we can have joy. We just need to do what we hear. He doesn’t expect us to know everything. It’s just about being obedient to what He is saying to us (in His word & by His Spirit). And if you are having a hard time being obedient, but your heart wants to do what Jesus says, then you are in a great place! He knows we’re weak and imperfect. If we mess up and sin, then all we need to do is repent. This is the best place to be. Abiding in His love. How do we do that? We keep His commandments. What’s the outcome? We have joy. Done and done.
