“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands you will remain in my love.”

John 15:9-10

Author Seth Godin writes, “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” I often think of running to the Father for shelter or comfort when things go wrong, or for answers to prayers in times of trouble or question. But He wants me to STAY right there in that place with Him. Rather than being a great vacation destination, He wants to be my home! As Christ followers we do this by staying in obedience to God, daily spending time in and meditating on His Word, and walking in the grace given us. If I am obedient to the letter of the law and pray but live in shame from my past indiscretions, I am not lodging with Him. If I continually claim the grace given but do not obey, I am not dwelling with Him. What do you need to change to make your home in God’s heart?🚦
