THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
How can you tell if it's a skunk?
Chances are, if it walks like a skunk, looks like a skunk and acts like skunk,
it's gonna be STINKY!
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
How can you tell if a person loves Jesus?
By reverence for God's Word and obedience to God's Word.
A commitment to reverence for and obedience to the Word of God brings a commitment from our Lord Jesus.

A person who truly loves Christ, loves the Bible and will study it.
Jesus also said that if a person loves Him, that person will keep the Word of God.

What better guide to have in life than the Word of God?
And what better promise have we, in this day, than having His PRESENCE to teach us and help us live according to His will?
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32)
