15“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.”
1 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
We have a helper to help us keep His commandments. He knows I need the help. He knows I am prone, very prone, to everything that follows with being human, that I am very human in thought.
If you love me He says. If you love me you’ll keep my commandments. I do love you, and I don’t keep the commandments, at least not in my head! However, over time, the Holy Spirit is slowly working my heart and my head.
The ways of the world hate the Christ, the Holy Spirit. Yet, it is the way to eternity in love, joy and peace. The ways of the world aren’t.
Hitch your wagon to this, to things above that are greater than a star, to the blessing He sent us – the Holy Spirit of God.
