Today’s text reminds us to remain in the Father’s love. If we look at the Greek word used here for “remain,” namely menai, we will discover that the meaning is quite profound because it is really a call to “abide or live” in God. This indicates the depth of our dignity and identity as men and women created by God. We should never forget this lesson as we seek to live out our call as His disciples in today’s world.
9 Jesus said to his disciples: “As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. 11 “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.”
think: We should always remember our dignity and identity as men and women created by God when we seek to live out our call as His disciples.
