If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
The first part of this verse tells us how we can abide in Christ’s love – by keeping His commandments. The second half of the verse sets before us our perfect example. Jesus Himself kept Hs Father’s commandments. Everything He did was in obedience to the will of God. He remained in the constant enjoyment of the Father’s love. Nothing should ever come in to mar the sweet fellowship between Christ and us.
