“So Samuel said: “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.” Then Saul said to Samuel, “I have sinned, for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice. Now therefore, please pardon my sin, and return with me, that I may worship the Lord.” (I Samuel 15:22‭-‬25 NKJV).

“Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels. But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:23‭-‬27 NKJV).

However,John 13:35 informs us,
By this shall all men know that you are my Disciples, if you have LOVE one to another.
Jesus said in John 14:15
If you LOVE me, keep my commandments.
+The LOVING of Christ and the LOVING of one another is evidence that we are Disciples of Christ.
+Remember the FRUIT of the SPIRIT (the FRUIT of the HEART of those who follow Christ) is LOVE.
+The HEARTS of all Disciples of Christ are filled with the LOVE of Christ by the Holy Spirit.
+Can our HEARTS be filled with the LOVE of Christ and Hatred, Unforgiveness, Bitterness, Wickedness and Evil at the same time?
+Let us judge ourselves that we be not judged, and let the LOVE of God the Judge.
+May we all be found guilty of His love and not guilty of the devil’s unrighteousness.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
