Jesus replied: "If anyone loves Me, they will obey Me. Then My Father will love them. But anyone who doesn't love Me, won't obey Me. What they have heard Me say doesn't really come from Me, but from the Father who sent Me.------John 14:23-24
Some say that ACTIONS speak louder than WORDS, and I believe that is pretty much TRUE with these verses of Scripture.
I believe that what Jesus was saying here is that those of us who TRULY LOVE Him will let it be KNOWN by our ACTIONS, that are provoked by our OBEDIENCE to His WILL. In other words, we will DO what He wans us to do. In order to do this we must FIRST KNOW what His WILL is, what exactly does He want us to do? We will be able to KNOW His will by READING and STUDYING His PRECIOUS HOLY WORD, the HOLY BIBLE. Then it is up to US to be OBEDIENT to Him, because we LOVE Him.
But the LOST PERSON will NOT OBEY Him, because they DON'T LOVE Him, and they DON'T LOVE Him, because they DON'T KNOW Him.
ALL the sermons and words of wisdom that Jesus preached or taught to the multitudes of people, were the WORDS that His FATHER wanted Him to say, and He SPOKE those WORDS out of HIS OWN OBEDIENCE to His Father.
If you have NEVER met Jesus, you REALLY don't KNOW Him and if you don't KNOW Him it is IMPOSSIBLE for you to TRULY LOVE Him and OBEY His words, but you can come to Him NOW by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He's waiting!!!
