‘If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, who will give you another Advocate, to be with you for ever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know the Spirit, because Spirit abides with you, and Spirit will be in you.
‘I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.’
How do we love Jesus? How do we follow him? What does the Advocate do that we can’t?
What about when we feel abandoned?
We will explore all of this and much more in our time of worship on Sunday. Don’t forget to bring a friend.
