Re:Verse passage – John 14:15-31 (day six)

“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” -Jesus, John 14:18

Jesus promised them His presence, even though he would no longer be present. He said, “…the world will see me no more, but you will see me.” Enter the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is our helper in that He enables us to truly see Jesus, to know His presence, until He comes again. It’s really no surprise then, that the Holy Spirit would bring to remembrance all that Jesus had said to them. It wasn’t a peculiar feeling that the Holy Spirit would give them, or even us now; no, it wasn’t like that. It was more than a feeling; it was Jesus’ very words brought back to them. Right there, in the memory of truths and promises spoken, they saw Jesus in all His beauty and goodness.

This is the reason we read God’s Word, to see and savor the beauty and goodness of Jesus by the power of the Spirit. So, if you want to see and experience Jesus’ presence in your life, you must be in His Word.
