May 14 2023: Bible Verse of the Day – Sixth Sunday of Easter Year A – If You Love Me You Will Keep My Commandments – John 14:15-21

15 Jesus said to his disciples: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always,

17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows him. But you know him, because he remains with you, and will be in you.

John 14:15-21

Let us Pray: Dear God, you have taught and guided your faithful people through the Holy Spirit. Please grant us the same wisdom and comfort of the Holy Spirit so that we may live our lives according to your will. We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Bible Verse of the Day for May 14 2023 Reflections

As we approach Pentecost Sunday, we shift our focus to the anticipation of the Holy Spirit’s arrival. Jesus mentions in the passage above that He will ask the Father to send another Advocate who will remain with us, and this Advocate is none other than the Holy Spirit.

It’s notable that Jesus calls the Holy Spirit the “Spirit of Truth,” and he mentions that the world is unable to receive the Holy Spirit.

Currently, we are living in the time that Jesus referred to as the “Age of the Holy Spirit.” It is beneficial to examine the coming of the Holy Spirit as Jesus presented it to His disciples.

To begin with, we should consider whether we are ready to accept the complete truth that comes with the Holy Spirit, which Jesus referred to as the “Spirit of Truth.”

If we are worldly and hold onto worldly beliefs and values, we will not be open to receiving the Holy Spirit.

If we are able to recognize the falsehoods and misguided values present in the world, we will be more inclined to reject them and accept the Holy Spirit with its many truths.

Conversely, if we are deeply embedded in the world and its values, it will be harder to accept the Holy Spirit and the truths it brings.

Additionally, being receptive to the arrival of the Holy Spirit grants us access to the most significant Advocate we can ever have.

The Holy Spirit serves as THE Advocate, implying that it is the sole helper we require. Being engulfed by the Holy Spirit gives us access to every grace we need in life.

Take some time today to think about how Jesus’ promise to His Apostles has come to fruition and how you too can receive this promise today.

Remember that Pentecost Sunday is only two weeks away, so prepare for it by praying to the Holy Spirit and eagerly anticipating its arrival.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
