A Daily Devotion for Thursday, May 14

John 14:15-21

verses 15-16: “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever-”

When I read the entire passage today, I am getting myself confused trying to make sense of every phrase and trying to understand why it is worded exactly this way. But the message is clear- when I accept Jesus and follow Him, He sends a Helper to abide with me forever. My human brain struggles with the Trinity. But I don’t struggle with Jesus’ instructions to follow Him. I understand He is the way to eternity, and this is because of His love for His creation. Verse 18a: “I will not leave you orphans.”

Holy Lord Jesus, I will follow you the rest of my days. Thank you for your unending grace shown to me so often and in so many ways. Thank-you for dwelling in me and being my helper, always. Amazing grace! Amen

Becky, transforming
