If WE love HIM

How can we have the companionship of the Holy Ghost, of Christ, and of the Father? How can we demonstrate our love for Christ?

.

In John 14:15-23, Christ invited us, using three different wordings, to demonstrate our love for Him by keeping keeping His commandments and living His word.

With each of the three invitations to demonstrate our love for Him, he promised an increasing level of Heavenly companionship.

.

The First Invitation
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

The First Promise – The Holy Ghost
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth …”

.

The Second Invitation
“21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: …”

The Second Promise – The Companionship of Christ
21 … and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

.

The Third Invitation
23 If a man love me, he will keep my words …”

The Third Promise – The Companionship of the Father
23 … and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”

.

If WE love HIM

WE will keep HIS commandments

And THEY will be with US
