To remain in the love of Christ is to function in an entangled oneness with the divinity of Jesus Christ, and this will strategically position us to walk perfectly in the blessings of our salvation. If we are not in alignment with His divinity, it means that we are functioning from the realm of humanity, which suggests - being ordinary in operation, where all our hopes that come with eternal joy can be drowned over time.

Reference: John 15:10 Amplified Bible (AMP)

"If you keep My commandments and obey My teaching, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and remain in His love."

If you observe the above versified reference carefully, you will notice that Jesus started with the conjunction "If" which is a conditional construction. "If" is often used to introduce possible and impossible conditions, actions or decisions and their expected outcomes, which implies that the Lord Jesus suggested this godly instruction as a worthy expression that would give birth to "remaining in His love" when acted upon.

Although the versified sentence was vocalised from the standpoint of suggestion, every serious Christian knows that the suggestion is a divine concept or essential factor that "MUST" be activated or applied to our faith walk, in order to keep experiencing a successful Christian life.

Furthermore, understand that we are no longer slaves to the Old Testament Mosaic law, because we are under the dispensation of God's grace, but as born again Christians, we can only grow in the knowledge of spiritual truths and increase in spiritual stature by being obedient to Christ's commands and teaching intentionally. To that effect, 1st John 5:3 says, "Loving God means keeping His commandments, and His commandments are not burdensome" (NLT).

So this Scripture defines the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. And here, John assured us that His commandments aren't burdensome, meaning that they don't weigh us down when we obey them; they can only be rewarding. Jesus Himself learnt obedience through what He suffered, although He is the Son of God. According to Hebrews 5:8-9, the Scripture says, "Son though He was, He learned obedience from what He suffered and, once made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him" (NIV).

Its important to grasp that the author of the book of Hebrews affirmed that "Christ Himself became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him", having passed the test of thorough obedience to God. Got it? Now all the Christians who obey Christ, on account of faith in His Word, qualify themselves to experience the full revelation of the Father's love through Christ; they equally remain in this love, to secure the good hope of eternal glory. Stay tuned for part 5. Shalom!

Guided Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I thank you for sending your only Son to demonstrate your unconditional love for me, through His sufferings and death. I'm grateful that I'm hugely alive in Christ as a result of your grace, faithfulness and lovingkindness. In the background of my hearty concord with your Supreme Divinity lies the thought of functioning in the Word and pleasing you all the way, in Jesus' Name, Amen!
