After having a tough day, a dear friend wrote me this note. He's been studying John 14 when Jesus comfort his disciples. Here's what he said to me. Somehow, I think it speak volumes and may be just what you, like I needed to hear...
"I have been Studying this for past week. That was the first instruction Jesus had for his disciples according John 14 the night before his crucifixion. I find that people that cause others stress and anxiety or try to put others down, do not exhibit fruits of the Holy Spirit that Jesus said would be apparent when we have received him. They may believe in God but they still live by the law which kills, only the Grace of God gives life.
So these persons that attack you, they are probably attacking the message that Jesus is still trying to get to us.
And that is, Love.
Love is the most important trait that is most like God, that we can exhibit to each other. "
Jesus Comforts His Disciples
1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
God's comfort to you as well...live in LOVE.
