Week of November 12 - Day 1

Day 1 Read: John 15:10

10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 

Reflect: What is the reward of obedience to God’s commands?

Consider: “If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love”—the obedient spirit of true discipleship cherishing and attracting the continuance and increase of Christ’s love; and this, He adds, was the secret even of His own abiding in His Father’s love![1]

Respond: If the reward of obedience is abiding in Christ’s love, what would be the consequences of disobedience? What does life without the love of Christ look like? What examples do you see of that around you? How does that compel you to respond?
