“Jesus answered and said to him, ‘If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and my Father will love him, and We will come to him and make our home with Him.’”
John 14:23. There is no other lasting glory besides God’s Word. The Father and the Son enter our hearts together with the Word, if we love it and keep it. All those in whom the Father and the Son have made their home become one and will rule with them. Nothing greater or more glorious than God’s Word could have been delivered to the disciples, and neither can anything greater or more glorious be delivered to us.
It was Jesus’ desire to deliver this glory to as many as possible by means of His disciples when He said, “All authority has been given to Me on heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciple of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20.
