John 14:15-16, 23b-26 Reflection
We are God’s tabernacle. We are the Holy of the Holies as the Trinity of The Father, Son and Holy Spirit live within us. It is not enough to just believe this because Jesus ask of us to keep His Commandments of loving God and Neighbor. If we read the Word and listen to the Holy Spirit we will understand that Love does not end at our immediate doorstep. If our heart is open we have constant reminders of being and/or doing. (John 14:15-16, 23b-26)
John 14 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
15 “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 forever.
23 Jesus answered him, “Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me.
25 “I have said these things to you while I am still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.
