Do you love Jesus?

If you love me, you will obey what I command.
(John 14:15 (NIV))

We are told not to judge others. 2 Timothy 4:1 tells us “of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead.” It is only He who shall rightfully judge.

Even so, we have the right and responsility to take a look at our lives and measure ourselves based on John 14:15. Do we honestly obey what Jesus commands? Do we desire to do what He would have us to do? If that is the measure of our love for Jesus, where does it place our relationship?

It is human nature to judge others based on what we are supposed to be doing ourselves. We need to take a long and serious look at ourselves before we look at others. We also need to pray that others will take the same long and serious look at themselves. Perhaps, if everyone took John 14:15 as the benchmark of all of their activities and relationships, we would truly show the love of Jesus in all that we do.

Do you love Jesus?
