Anyone who doesn’t love me will not obey me. And remember, my words are not my own. What I am telling you is from the Father who sent me.John 14:24
Jesus again reminds His followers that His words are not his own, but God the Father’s words. He is telling them again about the authority of God. When the world claims other religions or renounces God’s authority over them, they are saying that they have no love for who God is and do not know Him. They do not care about authority but would rather rule their own lives.
As Christians, we must live like God is the authority over our lives. We must show that He is in charge and we have given Him control. This is how we are different from the world. This is how we show them who God is. Have you given Him control over your life? Pray and ask Him to take control today.
A Prayer to Remember
You are in control of my life. Help me to leave it in your hands and not take it back into my own. Amen.
