How Jesus Comforts Us

I will not leave you comfortless [or orphans]: I will come to you.—John 14:18

In these words of the Savior we have an “I will not” and an “I will” in close and significant conjunction. One seems to show us the negative, and the other the positive side of Christ’s love. The first suggests his knowledge, feeling, responsibility, etc., with regard to his disciples, and the second the activity of his love. He will not leave them orphans, he will come unto them. We who have become disciples of Christ know that these words apply to ourselves, as well as to those to whom they were originally spoken; and we who know the needs of the spiritual life will lay hold of such a promise as this and appropriate it in all its fulness.

    Dear Friends.

    I can see this is some years ago (2011) and so many things has happened ever since then. This morning I sit here and have my morning coffee and think about you. How are you and how does the Holy Spirit comfort you these days, these years?

    I know many of you has gone through trials and hardships ( I have) and some have experienced temptations and persecutions. We can cry for that and get out, but somehow it seems it goes on and on. Then there is only Jesus.

    How does Jesus comfort us today? My Jesus. I love you Jesus with my whole heart. But without you I cannot do. Therefore the words in John 14: 26

    (of course Jesus would not leave us comfortless or fatherless)

    “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
    27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
    28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
    quote end.

    From my heart I bless everyone here reading along. How much we need each other and how much to help each other all along the day in our time. In the mornings I listen to this music. It is in Dutch and if we do not speak the language we will not understand the words, but we know the songs and the Spirit will comfort us in our hearts. Watching these beautiful Dutch believers.


    They are not young all of them and have lived a life; some has seen the 2.world war and how about families and children? We both have a pain in our hearts, but also joy since the Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts as Jesus and the Father.

    This is the Link. God bless all of you from my heart. I love you. from Lincoln
