Re:Verse Passage – John 15:9-17 (day four)
Have you ever said, “I just don’t know what God wants me to do?” Maybe you have felt that you have not heard from God in a while. I have good news for you. We have a direct command from Jesus! This passage should answer that need. We are to love…we are to serve…we are to bear fruit. To love, to serve, to share Christ…they are all the same. If we love God, we will serve others as a fruit of our relationship with Him. The first and foremost service to another is to share the love of God with them. There is a wonderful benefit to being obedient to this command also…”whatever you ask of the Father in Jesus’ name, He will give you.” Love, joy, answered prayer…what more could a person want? If we start with the commands that Jesus has already given us in Scripture, He may open more to us. He looks for our faithfulness to the basics first before giving the big assignments!
