So you have sorrow now. But I will see you again, then you will rejoice, and no one can rob you of that joy. This is what Jesus told his disciples, you have been given something that cannot be taken away. Jesus is going to the cross. And there he is drawing amen to himself. In john 12, Jesus says, When I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself. And in First Corinthians 1522, Paul says, For as in Adam, all die, so in Christ all will be made alive in Christ's death, resurrection and ascension. Jesus has made you one with God, you have been included in the tribal life of God in there, you will share their joy. This is God's gift to you. He has done this and no one can rob you of this. Jesus said, this is the truth of your being. The disciples don't understand this yet. But there's coming a day when they will. Sadly, many of us today still don't understand what Jesus has done for them. We fail to see the new reality, the new relationship that we've entered into with God, Jesus points to the intimacy and the embrace that is now ours. He says, You will ask the Father directly in my name, and he will grant you your request. May we understand? And may we see what the disciples eventually did see the truth of who they had become children of God and that is what you are, and what you now have is his joy and no one can take it from you. Amen.
