Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 251

  1. “and we will come to him and make our home with him” (John 14:23).

What a promise! God himself engages intimate connection with those who obey Him. The condition of this amazing reality is obedience for obedience demonstrates faith–it connects the dots between belief in God’s existence and real acceptance of His right to rule. In modern times, people too easily think that belief can be simple acknowledgement or mental assent. The “yes, I believe” that is uttered without any thought of behavior change seems to put an extra ticket (perhaps an eternal one) into someone’s pocket, but they haven’t engaged real relationship. The relationship with God that most people hunger for can only come through obedience. There is no other route!
