“If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you. I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you.
This Friend is the Spirit of Truth. The godless world can’t take him in because it doesn’t have eyes to see him, doesn’t know what to look for. But you know him already because he has been staying with you, and will even be in you!
“I will not leave you orphaned. I’m coming back. In just a little while the world will no longer see me, but you’re going to see me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive. At that moment you will know absolutely that I’m in my Father, and you’re in me, and I’m in you.
“The person who knows my commandments and keeps them, that’s who loves me.
I almost forgot this week is Valentine’s day’s week!
Love in the air! Butterflies all over, fluttering feathers, sweet aroma of love and hearts pounding after hearts with passion. Exciting!!!!!!
Woe to anyone without a lover? Someone to love even imagined love! Well, seek out someone to shower that bottled up love on.
Go all out to be kind to people this week. Be a light in the gloomy next few hours for someone! Practice love and let this week be a test run!
Friends, no one’s love is equal to the lover of your soul. The bright and morning star, the Rose of Sharon, the soon coming King. Let the sweet aroma of Christ’s love fill your heart. Talk to him today for he is closer to you than you will ever know!
1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
Love and Hatred for Fellow Believers
3 We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. 4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 5 But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
7 Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This old command is the message you have heard. 8 Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and in you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. 10 Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light,and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. 11 But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.
Friends, If our deeds are pure, why are we afraid of the Light? Why are you afraid of the light – the light of the word of God shining and guiding our paths. Evil deeds hide in darkness! In the inward place of the heart, battleground of the mind, oozing out from words and actions are the fruit of either hatred or love. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Meditating on things that are pure, kind, peaceful, loving, of good report and praying in the Holy Ghost will ensure all filth and evil is kept at bay. The Lord is present to help us by His Holy Spirit to keep the field of our hearts pure and holy unto Him. Call on Jesus today to help you as I am. If you do not have the assurance of salvation, by the inward witness of the heart, reach out today. Jesus is right there within your reach.
Father, we humbly come before your throne through the blood of Jesus. Cleanse us today from all unrighteousness and create in us a new heart, that trust you and embraces you – love your creation. We ask Lord, that your light will shine on us and lead us on the right path of glory in Christ Jesus name we pray. Amen
