Love For Jesus
Jesus said “If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve toldÂ you. I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you anotherÂ Friend so that you will always have someone with you.”Â – (John 14:15-16)
Love is shown by the actions that back up a person’s words.
WeÂ show our love for Jesus by what we do, especially by obeying whatÂ he has taught us.
Jesus, however, doesn’t expect this demonstratedÂ love to be a one way street. He shows us his love for us by havingÂ the Father send another Friend like himself to us. This Friend isÂ called the Advocate or Comforter or Helper in other translations.Â The Father sends this Friend so that we will never be alone. We canÂ be confident that we will always have the presence of God in ourÂ lives!
Prayer : Father, words can’t express my thanks for the gift of the HolyÂ Spirit. I know that even when I am by myself, that I am not alone.Â I know that when earthly friends forsake or those close to meÂ betray me that your Presence is my Helper and my Friend. Thank you.Â Please forgive me for not seeking this Friend’s help and support inÂ times of trouble. Please make the presence of this Friend veryÂ clear as I live my daily life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
