“I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” (John 14: 18)
This is a promise. Jesus was assuring his followers then and today that his departure from the earth did not leave them alone. He gave us all an enduring, precious, and powerful gift: the Truth.
The Truth that Jesus shared with the world and demonstrated through his healing and transcendence of death remains with us in all its glory and efficacy. This revealed Truth of divine Love and man as God’s child and image, is forever present and active. It existed before Jesus appeared on earth and will continue without end. This Truth is forever with us and its purpose and activity is the divine Love that heals us.
The Comforter is our awareness of this law, this Truth of being. This healing ideal is forever dawning in times of need, coming to us in new ways that enlighten and uplift. We are always being reminded of our divine origin and of God’s ever-presence and power. These attending angels are infinitely available and they come from God, from that perfect wisdom that knows precisely the comfort we need and just when we need it.
I will come to you. The Christ that heals will always be where we are, to draw us in with merciful love and to uplift us with strengthening inspiration. Jesus’s great and undying love for us left us with a faithful companion—a practical and available consciousness of our Oneness with saving, comforting, all-powerful divine Love.
