Last week Colin wrote about the Ascension, Jesus leaving the disciples and going to heaven to be with God. He made a promise,
that He would send the Holy Spirit down to be with them and therefore Jesus would always be with them and us.
How do you think the
disciples would have felt now? They gave up lots of things to follow Jesus, they stood by him and listened to his teachings.
They witnessed his miracles. They watched him get arrested and die on the cross, they were sad when he died and then they saw him
rise again from the tomb. He was with them for a short time again but then they saw him disappear into a cloud and he was gone!
They must have been confused, don’t you think?
We are going to look at a part of the bible in the book of John, chapter
14, verses 15-21. We’ll look at it bit by bit.
"f you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father,
and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it
neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. - John 14:15-17
What is Jesus
talking about here?
Jesus is promising to send something remarkable that will help us do amazing things. The “Spirit of truth” came
from God and it can live in all of us and comfort us.
Jesus says “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” It’s important
to do what God asks because that demonstrates we do truly love Him and want to do what He asks.
Hope you are all keeping well and finding different things to occupy your time, like helping around the house! Hoovering, doing
the dishes, tidying your rooms!! I joke a little! I know you all have school time and school work to do but, joking aside,
you could really help your adults by doing little things around the house….. and you might enjoy it!!!
