“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him. “He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.” (John 14:23–24, NASB95)
You have been obedient in many areas but you are still lacking in understanding of the part My discipline must play in your spiritual growth. Express your love for Me not only in words of praise and adoration but also in obedience. My Father and I will abide in you as you listen and obey these commands that are for your own good. You are too often arguing – dissipating your energies. When you obey, you feel My Peace in your heart. Why do you so often delay? In My Will is your peace.
