Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
From this scripture we can see that those who truly love God are those who are able to abide by the Lord’s way and that God loves such kind of people. This is because those who love God are able to worry about God’s worries and think about God’s thoughts, be of one mind with God, obey and revere God, and do everything in accordance with. Take the ’ disciple Peter for example. He pursued to love God and satisfy God all his life. He accepted God’s commission to shepherd God’s sheep without his personal plans and considerations. So the Lord Jesus gave him the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Peter achieved an ultimate love for God and obedience unto death, creating a beautiful and resounding testimony for God. It can be seen that Peter is after God’s heart and his pursuit is praised by God. Therefore, we should imitate Peter and pursue to be a person who can obey, revere, and love God. By doing so, we can have God’s presence and blessings and inherit God’s promises. Just as God says, “The reason why only those who truly love God have the most value and meaning in their lives, and only they truly , is because these people live in God’s light, they are able to live for God’s work and management; they do not live in darkness, but live in the light; they do not live meaningless lives, but lives that have been blessed by God. Only those who love God are able to testify to God, only they are God’s witnesses, only they are blessed by God, and only they are able to receive God’s promises. Those who love God are God’s intimates, they are the people beloved by God, and they can enjoy blessings together with God. Only people such as this will live to eternity, and only they will forever live under God’s care and protection” (“Those Who Love God Will Forever Live Within His Light”).
