6.12.13

15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him,because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be  in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

John 14:15-18

Someone recently told me the true litmus test on your relationship with Christ is obedience.  If you love Him you will obey Him.  This may sound easy, but it is not.  Every thought, every action, every attitude has to be Christ centered.  We will fail, but we must ask Him to give us the grace and the strength to do His will.  He will bring us closer to Him and closer to how He wants us to be.  We cannot do it alone, we must give it all to Him, trust Him and obey.
