You Are Going to Disclose Yourself to Us

There are times  when we just need  to think  on God’s word  for ourselves  —  without a bunch  of commentary.     John 14:22-31  is one  of those times  for us  to think upon.

Judas  (not Iscariot)  said to Him,  “Lord,  what then has happened  that You are going  to disclose Yourself  to us  and not  to the world?”

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 abode  with him.     He  who does not  love Me  does not  keep My words;  and the word  which you hear  is not Mine,  but the Father’s  who sent Me. 

“These things  I have spoken  to you  while abiding  with you.      But the Helper,  the Holy Spirit,  whom the Father will send  in My name,  He will teach you  all things,  and bring  to your remembrance  all that I said to you.      Peace  I leave  with you;  My peace  I give  to you;  not as the world gives   do I give  to you.
Do not let your heart  be troubled,  nor  let it be fearful.      

“You heard  that I said to you,   ‘I go away,  and I will come  to you.’     If you loved Me,  you would have rejoiced  because I go  to the Father,  for the Father   is greater than I.     Now I have told you  before it happens,  so that  when it happens,  you may believe.      I will not speak  much more  with you,  for the ruler  of the world is coming,  and he  has nothing  in Me;  but so that the world   may know  that I love the Father,  I do exactly  as the Father commanded Me.”

Let us keep  these words  of Jesus  in our hearts  and minds.     If we honestly want Jesus  to abide  in us,  we need to honestly love Him  for who He is.     We “keep”  His  “word”  through faith,  hope,  and love.     Jesus.  then. forgives  and perfects.

Knowing  what Jesus went through  for our sakes,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for Your peace  in these troublesome times.”

Love,
