The Way the Truth and the Life

1 John 2:5-6
But whoever keeps Jesus’ word, the love of God is truly perfected in him. This is the way we may know that we are in union with him: whoever claims to abide in him ought to live [just] as he lived.

Do you know Jesus? One way to get to know Him is to read His words in scripture and to let them soak in by silent meditation on them. Speak to Him in the silence of your heart throughout the day and allow more silent time to listen for His gentle response. Make an effort to follow in His ways. If you want to be open to the abundance of God’s love…improve your relationship with Jesus. That won’t guarantee you a trouble-free life as Jesus promised that His followers would be persecuted. When you love as Jesus loved, you love all people with no divisions. This will guarantee that some people will not like you. But…you will have an inner peace amidst any storm. Your life will be a source of inspiration and transformation…and you will be on the path to becoming your true self.
