keep my words

44 Jesus shouted, “Whoever believes in me doesn’t believe in me but in the one who sent me. 45 Whoever sees me sees the one who sent me.46 I have come as a light into the world so that everyone who believes in me won’t live in darkness. 47 If people hear my words and don’t keep them, I don’t judge them. I didn’t come to judge the world but to save it.48 Whoever rejects me and doesn’t receive my words will be judged at the last day by the word I have spoken. 49 I don’t speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me regarding what I should speak and say. 50 I know that his commandment is eternal life. Therefore, whatever I say is just as the Father has said to me.” (John 12:44-50, CEB)

Jesus says here that he came to save the world not to judge it. He doesn’t speak his own words but the words of the Father.

If you hear Jesus’ words is better than rejecting Jesus. If you reject Jesus and don’t hear his words you will be judged.

So listen to Jesus and try to do what he asks. Allow Him to work in and through your life and to show you the love and grace that comes from the Father.

Keep his words and allow them to permeate your life.

And in that, you will be saved.
