In John`s biography of Jesus, chapter 15, we read Jesus` words to His disciples: "Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father`s commandments, and remain in his love. I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be made full" (John 15:9 & 10).
To be close to Jesus, I must choose to follow Him. The best way to follow is to be lead by Jesus--and this means we must obey His Words so we know which way He is telling us to go.
