Do you feel unsuccessful on this day? Do you feel that no one loves you and that everyone turns away from you? Well, I have good news for you: “You are loved by God”, do you know what that means? That is the most wonderful thing you can hear, since God does not love us because we deserve it, He loves us because He has decided so and we give glory to our Creator for it, because being we imperfect people He can bear us.
God has never left His people alone and this is demonstrated throughout all history in the Scriptures. Let us remember that Christ being God became man and came to die for us and after He died and resurrected He had to ascend to heaven, even so, He always thought of us, not to leave us alone, and as a reward He promised to send us to the Comforter: ” The Holy Spirit”, to guide us every moment of our lives:
20 On that day you will realize 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.”
In verse 20 Jesus is talking about the promise of the Holy Spirit. Let us remember that it is the Holy Spirit that convinces us of sin and at the same time guides us to the full knowledge of the truth in Christ Jesus, and at that moment of Christ departing and them receiving the Holy Spirit, they would remember with great fullness all that Christ had that is, the veil of their faces would be removed and they would arrive at spiritual knowledge, which is how it happens with us, when we receive God, our knowledge is transformed.
Now, we must also know that the one who says that loves God must keep His commandments, otherwise he is hypocritical and does not really love God. One thing is to fail, we are human and anyone can make a mistake, but another very different is to know that you are in error and never want to change that for the love of God. Remember that if we love the Father, He then loves us.
