In His Love


“I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. – I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!”
John 15:9,11 (NLT)

This was one of the most passionate speeches Jesus Christ made. He is before His disciples and encourages them to “abide” in Him. He uses the illustration of a vine and a branch. The branch is alive because it is connected to the vine. The vine is the source of life and as long as the branch “abides” or “remains” connected to the vine it will thrive. Jesus wanted the same for us. He comes and assures us, “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me.” How powerful is this? Jesus loves us in the same way that God the Father loved Him. What a supernatural love, and it is ours. And what does Jesus ask of us? He asks that we remain in His love. Jesus is saying, “I love you just like God the Father loves me and I want you to enjoy, bask in and take advantage of all the love I have for you!” No wonder He said that our joy would overflow. Today, remain in the awareness of His love.

Dear Jesus, thank You for Your love. I realize that You are the vine and I am a branch. Today, help me remain in You. Help me realize all the love I have from my connection with You. As I remain in Your love, fill me with Your joy.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
