The passage I read was John 14:25-31

You can find that passage here:

My summary of the passage is this:

Jesus speaks to His disciples about His coming death & resurrection.He is very encouraging and reassuring almost as if leaving His children with a baby sitter.In this case the baby sitter s the Holy Spirit and we are the babies.

As I reflect:

Jesus has left us not only with peace that passes understanding, but also with the Helper whom the Father sent to teach us and help us remember all that Jesus said.In verse 31 Jesus shows His obedience to the Father and indicates that this obedience even unto death is what shows the world that He loves the Father.I believe we too ought to let our action speak louder than our words here.This is only possible through the Holy Spirit and thus we should remember daily to abide in the Spirit that we be empowered to have actions reflectant of our love and obedience to the Lord.

My response to the Lord:

Father, your Son was the ultimate example of love and obedience as He laid down His life for us.I thank you for my salvation because of your Son, and I thank you for your Holy Spirit here to help me.May I learn by your Helper to be more like your Son in laying down my life daily for you and for others.In Jesus name I pray.Amen.
