John 14 (pt 4)

If you love me…

.

Not the words of a spoilt teenager here,

Taunting her lover to display, through acts of reckless bravado,

How much he has submitted himself to her control.

.

Instead the challenge of one soon to depart,

Reminding his friends that, through acts of reckless passion,

They will remain free and truly known.

.

“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him,because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me any more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” [John 14:15-21]
