7th May 2012 John 14:21-26
Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”. Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?”. Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. “All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
The Holy Spirit will remind us; how often do we remember that or even think about it? We go to scripture to be reminded about Jesus words but here he tells us that the Holy Spirit does this for each of us personally.
If there was ever a verse which reassures us of God in the world always then this is it.
If ever you feel alone, this is the truth that you're not.
If ever you feel unable to be an evangelist, this is the reason why you can.
