The Truth, part 1: Reality Not Illusion

This evening had to be surreal and confusing. Even in this familiar celebration of the passover, everything was different. The weight of the teaching this time signaled a critical juncture in their journey. And to think that Jesus was holding back and not telling them everything. (16:12) And in the midst of this, Jesus says “I am leaving.” And, “it will be better for you if I leave.” (16:17) So much of what Jesus had shown them throughout their three years together seemed otherworldly. And, the words tonight about an Advocate, a Guide that would be sent after He was gone at some level must have seemed unreal. Yet, they had seen Him back up His words time and time again. He even calls the Advocate who would come, “the Spirit of Truth.” (14:16)

From Series: "The Truth "

Our God wants to be known. He sent Jesus. Jesus wants to be known. He reveals His character over and over again from new and different angles. He uses metaphors that we can relate to so we can know Him. He is with us. He is with us like bread, light, open doors, a good shepherd, resurrection & life, way, truth, life, a true vine, living one, the first and last. As we set our intention this year to let our households be WELLs (Welcome in Jesus, Engage Our Neighbors, Listen for Insight, and Love to Try), we will be strengthened as we discover that Jesus is not just with us in general, but that He is with us in very tangible ways at just the right time, in just the right way!
