John 14 (pt 5)

Those who try to love, will try to obey.

The quality and quantity of love given and received not conditional on passing a test,

For grace is always willing to accept those who feel failures,

And quick to show the treasure in the mud.

.

My love is simply expressed:

“I want to be your home.”

I am willing to acknowledge the work needed on the property,

But remain grateful that this King is willing to live in a slum dwelling for now.

.

“Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?” Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. “All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” [John 14:22-27]
