Come Alongside

John 14: 15-21

Jesus promises the Holy Spirit

15 ‘If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you for ever – 17 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[a] in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me any more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realise that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 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.’

To obey God is to love him and to love him is to know him and his power at work in us. We are never alone and will always be alive, even when we die. God is nearer than we think and he has revealed himself in the person of Jesus.



brother, Lord,

come alongside those 

who are desperate to know you, 

yet who cannot overcome

their unbelief.


And may your faithful ones

glimpse you,

just as you promised,

until we become the eyes

of a blind world that will not see.
