Jesus answered, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. The one who doesn’t love me will not keep my words. The word that you hear is not mine but is from the Father who sent me.
I have spoken these things to you while I remain with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.
Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Don’t let your heart be troubled or fearful. You have heard me tell you, ‘I am going away and I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I. I have told you now before it happens so that when it does happen you may believe.”
John 14:23-29 (CSB)
We are living in the already but not yet, between Jesus’ first coming and the anticipation of His second. We have been given the call to follow Him and the hope that we will be with Him forever. And in the midst of this in-between, we have been given the Holy Spirit to teach us, counsel us, to be God with us. Let His peace settle your worries, your anxieties, and give you rest.
