15”If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. 17This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you. 18”I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. 19In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. 20On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.” (John 14:15-21, NRSV)
How many of us feel all alone right now? This would be week 11 of the season of Quarantine. If you live alone it is probably becoming unbearable. I spent about 3 weeks alone in March, my family was in Wisconsin while I was in Texas. It was rough. But then I could go out and see people and interact with people. Now if I was alone I would only be able to interact with people online. And that is not enough, even for introverts, it is getting to be too much. Which is why we have to remind ourselves that we are never truly left alone. God is always with us.
We need to remember that God said to each of us, “I will not leave you orphaned.” God will always be with us.
We are never alone!
