GUIDED BY THE TRINITY

May 15, 2017

Today’s gospel:  John 14:21-26

We as God’s people must obey His commandments. There are many today who profess to love God but who do not follow in His ways. As Jesus has said, “Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me.” (v.21a).

How does God guide us in the way we are to go? Guiding us is the work of the Triune God. The Father, who sent Jesus, sends the Spirit in his name. “The Advocate, the holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name–he will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.” (v.26).

God gave us His commandments, Jesus expounded on them, and the Holy Spirit enables us to understand and embrace them. God is the Father whom we obey, Jesus is the Lord whom we love, and the Spirit is the guide whom we rely on.
