Those who love Jesus receive in return not only ‘his life’, but the Father’s unmeasured Love as well.
John 14: 15-21
Love breeds loyalty, and like silent companions, hand in hand they journey through life. Today’s Gospel reminds us that loyalty born of love for Jesus brings its rewards: communion with Him, a share in His works, the power to know Him, and make Him known. Those who love Jesus receive in return not only ‘his life’, but the Father’s unmeasured Love as well.
Eternally loyal with Jesus, our life will always be a return to the Father’s House. Only when we feel the Father’s strong hand guiding us, when we receive His patient care and His endless mercy, will we discover the path leading to our True Home.
On that path we discover a truth known only to those who follow the way of love; the life that remains after all else is peeled away. We see and know ourselves as He does. And in His hands, we become once more instruments of His Love, seeds that bear good fruit in the hearts of those we meet, and in the fertile fields of this world.
