A craft you could do this week is to make a comfort box.
Find an empty box, like a small shoe box or any box with a lid.
it with some nice paper, wrapping paper maybe. Write on the top 'Comfort Box'. Now put all the things in it that comforts
you, maybe a little pebble that you like holding, a picture, a bracelet, a little teddy that you love. Anything that brings
I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Yet in a little while the world will see me no more, but you will see
me. Because I live, you also will live." John 14:18-19
This is not the first or the last time in the Gospels that Jesus
promises to stay with us. He admits that the world wonít see His physical body after a little while, but ďyou will see meĒ. What does
this mean? When we have Jesus in our hearts, we know that He is present, even without seeing Him. And how do we
live in Him? Well, we can read His Word, talk to Him, and worship in and out of church. Doing things like that is not a duty or obligation,
but an enjoyable way in which we can stay connected to God.
"In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me,
and I in you. 21 whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved
by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him. John 14:20-21
Jesus promises that when He sends the Holy Spirit,
we will know that Jesus is God, and the Spirit is God also (Even though Heíd been trying to describe and explain these things already!).
we hear Jesus again saying that all who love Him should keep His commandments. That also means we should love each other. If we have
the Spirit, we will naturally want to share it with others. Think of sports at school. If we are excited to represent a team,
we will noisily, madly wave and cheer. We should be that excited and lively about our relationship with Jesus. Our joy should overflow
so that others want it, as well!
How can we demonstrate love to others? What is something you can do TODAY that will help someone else?
a beautiful promise this is. God loves us enough to give us His son, Jesus. He has also given us the Holy Spirit to remind us of His
love and to comfort us. We can pray through the help of the Holy Spirit, and it can help us recognise Godís presence. This Spirit
can comfort our souls in times of trouble, this will bring peace, hope, and joy. We are comforted by our great Godís love. Letís pass
that on to one another!

Dear Lord, Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to be with us and comfort us. We know that this means that you are with us
whatever we are doing and wherever we are. Thank you. Amen
