Scripture:   John (NIV) 12:26  Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be.  My Father will honor the one who serves me. 
John (NIV) 14:30  I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming.  He has no hold over me,
31  but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.  Come now; let us leave. 

Observation:    In the first verse the love the Father has for His Son is seen in that He honors those who serve His special Son.  In 14:30-31 the love Jesus had for His Father would be easily seen by those around Him.   The intensity of the suffering he would endure was proof of His love for His Father and His willingness to do as commanded in spite of personal suffering.  Oh, how Jesus loves His Father!   

Application:   I always walk in the love my Heavenly Father has for me.  And the love I have in my heart for my Savior can be easily seen by others when they see me doing what He directs even if it takes me through tough times.    

Prayer:   Lord, it is special when I get a glimpse of the love you have for your Father and the love He has for you. I am blest to find myself right in the middle!  Amen
