“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 14:21) Scripture Reading – James 2:14-26 On the night of His arrest, Jesus taught His disciples the truth about God. He explained how the Father, Son, and Spirit work together to bring salvation to the world. The plan of God revealed the mystery of how the holy God was going to solve the problem of sin, so that unholy people could be accepted in His presence. The Father, Son, and Spirit revealed to us the depth of God’s love. It must have been difficult for the disciples to grasp that Jesus is one with the Father. We can al

“In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.” (John 14:20) Scripture Reading – Ephesians 1:1-14 Jesus’ desire for all believers is that we do greater works than He did. After proclaiming this amazing vision for our lives, Jesus went on to explain how that will happen. We will do these works when we ask in prayer (vs. 13-14), obey His commandments (v. 15), depend on the Holy Spirit (vs. 16-17), and live in union with Christ (vs. 18-20). Being in Christ is essential to the Christian life. In just a few more verses, Jesus will refer to this as abiding in Him, saying that He is the vine and we are the branches (John 15:1-6). The Father and Son are in perfect

“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.” (John 14:18-19) Scripture Reading – Acts 18:1-17 If we are convinced that Jesus is with us and that we will live after we die, then we will boldly strive to make His Name known. As we grow in Christ, the temptations of this world will lose their power, and we will do greater works because we know that our future is in the Lord’s hands. People who do great things for God are those who don’t put their own considerations first. We reject the temptations of this world because we know that God is worthy to be worshipped by all peop

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 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 14:16-17) Scripture Reading – Romans 7:14-8:2 We desire to obey God’s commands, but too often we are weak and fail when we try using our own strength. Our flesh continues to wage war against our heart’s desire to obey God, and we simply can’t succeed. Thankfully, God doesn’t leave us alone in our desperation. He gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit, so that we can live our life in obedience to God. Jesus Himself asked the Father to send the
