The final proof of being a disciple of Jesus given to us is seen in answered prayer that comes through our abiding in Jesus, and His words abiding in us.
The first proof is that we abide in His word (logos – written word), which brings us to know the truth which then brings us to Jesus who makes us free.
The second proof is abiding in Jesus’ love for us. Knowing and believing God’s love for us in Christ, we enter into the greatest freedom—being well loved sons of God, in Christ Jesus. Accepted in the Beloved, we are loved and to love as Jesus loves.
Now, we enter into the third and most glorious — reigning with Christ in answered prayer.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. John 15:7, 8
Union in Christ with Christ, here we live. Here the words Jesus has spoken to us abide inside of us. Knowing Jesus in truth, abiding in Christ and all He is, we allow His words to abide in us.
The circle of truth continues to become a cord that is not easily broken. We abide in His word accepting the truth of the word until we know the truth which brings us into freedom. The greatest truth is the love that God has for us in Christ Jesus our Lord. We accept the commandment to love as we are experiencing His love for us. Now, our oneness is complete. Having submitted to His word and His love we live in union with Christ.
We abide in Jesus and His words abide in us. Prayer is intimate truth accepted, that gives confidence in prayer. We can ask what we desire, and it shall be done for us.
Our Father is glorified as we bear much fruit; it becomes obvious whose son we are. The conversation with Jesus inside, abiding in His spoken love for us, and His written word to us, we do not struggle at prayer. We have patience because we know He who promises is faithful. We are bearing the fruit of the Spirit, answered prayers, and cheerful patience.
In His word, in His love, in Jesus Himself – we are His disciples.
