Deeper Meaning Of John 14:15 That You Need To Know.

One of the most important instructions given by Jesus Christ to his disciples is to keep his commandments, and this is because he is the true God and eternal life (1John 5:20) and according to Ecclesiastes 12:13, keeping God's commandments is the whole duty of man, and since God is love, and Romans 13:10 reveals that love is the fulfilling of the law (God's commandments), anyone who knows God will love him and keeps his commandments, and John 14:15 reveals something deep about this which I want to share with you, and so I want you to carefully read the entire article as I discuss the deeper meaning of the scripture.

Here is the deeper meaning of John 14:15.

"If you love me, keep my commandments."

According to the first part of the Bible passage above, "If you love me", means that if you understand God's love, knows his thoughts and plans which according to Jeremiah 29:11 are thoughts and plans of good and not evil to give you an expected end which is eternal life. According to 1John 2:5, anyone who keeps God's commandment, the love of God has been perfected in such a person, which means he or she understands or knows God perfectly, and 1John 2:3 lets us know that the only way we are certain that we have known him (God), is when we keep his commandments.

"keep my commandments.", this second part of the scripture means that after you have understood or known him (his thoughts and plans), you should keep his commandments which according to John 15:12, is to love one another (your neighbour) as he (Christ) has loved you, and Ephesians 5:25 reveals that Christ loved the church by giving himself for it. This means that you as part of the church which Christ love and gave himself for, should also love your neighbour the same way Christ loved you.
