- Jesus foretells how the disciples will react very soon.
- They will scatter and leave Jesus.
- This is an important lesson for the disciples, and for us…for all Christians know and understand.
- Jesus however explains that He is not alone for the Father is with him.
- We are never alone either. The Father is with us also, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
- This is the Helper that has just been talking about.
- We need this reassurance to know we are not alone.
- Without Jesus in our lives we have no peace, no comfort, no joy, no hope.
- With Jesus we have all of these things, even in our darkest moments.
- Jesus offers us the most comforting hope we’ll ever know…peace in our hearts.
- We will face tribulation, troubles in this world. Hardships, setbacks, and failures.
- None of that matters though…when we have Jesus in our hearts.
- Jesus said “But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
- Jesus fought the good fight and won! For us!!!
- Jesus descended into Hell, defeated Satan, freed us of our sin debt, and ransomed us with His own life!
- Jesus “Overcame the World”
- Satan has lost, and we have the victory through Jesus Christ our Savior.
- Take heart in knowing you have a Savior who gave up everything for you.
