Part 2 of 2


John 14:21 (KJV) 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.

John 14:21 (AMP) The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]

John 14:21 (NLT2) Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”

John 14:21 (MSG) "The person who knows my commandments and keeps them, that's who loves me. And the person who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and make myself plain to him."       

John 14:21 (NIV) Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him."


Keepeth: To hold; to retain in one's power or possession; not to lose or part with; as, to keep a house or a farm; to keep anything in the memory, mind or heart. To have in custody for security or preservation.

           Since the Law of God has been fulfilled in Jesus, we are left with two commands that should be a part of our everyday walk with the Lord and direction from the Holy Spirit.   The first is to Love God with all that you are, and the 2nd is like it, that you are to love your neighbor as yourself. Luke 10:27 (NKJV) So he answered and said, "'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and 'your neighbor as yourself. "  This simply means to do to them as you would have them do to you. This demonstrates your love for God and reciprocates the love back to you. 

          We see from this passage that it will bring to you Jesus who will reveal Himself to you. You have proven that you are trustworthy to pour into you whatever Jesus has and wants to give to you. When Jesus talks about showing himself to you, He is talking about His attributes, His power, His Knowledge, His wisdom, His abilities and how He gets things done.

          In the physical world, we call that mentoring or shadowing or training. If you start a job somewhere, you want someone to guide you and direct you in how the job is to be performed so that you can improve your abilities and skills in doing this job to perfection.  You know that as you learn this occupation, you will get better and better on a daily basis to the point that your skill [ability to get the job done and done right] will increase to the point that you will make yourself more valuable to the company that has hired you. 

As this progresses, so does your income and management skills and you will become more useful to the company. This idea has great benefits in that it will make you a better person and put you in a position for advancement with the employer. If you stay focused and maintain a good attitude, it will cause you to reach levels with the company you could only dream of.

          This is the point that Jesus is making here. He, the creator of the universe, is going to give you His time and effort to train you to do your job to perfection. Are we ready, willing and able to let Him do His job and mold you to be all that He intends for you. If you don’t show up to the job every day, you will not be equipped to move forward with the Company and advancements will not come your way. You must apply yourself to the task at hand if you are to let the Mentor show Himself to you so that you can become skilled in the Word to the point that God will escalate your position with Him in His Company. This should be the goal of all believers and God is ready, willing and able to do for you if you will surrender yourself to His training. One needs to get himself in a position He can trust us, with more and more of His Kingdom and its resources. He wants to reveal Himself to you. It is our role to make ourselves available. Proverbs 8:34 (NKJV) Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors.
