John 14:19 – Because I live, you also will live.

Context: In the upper room discourse, Jesus has spoken of the future – heaven and the sending of the Holy Spirit.

John 14:18-19 – “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.  Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me.  Because I live, you also will live.” – Jesus

Observations:

  • Jesus will not leave the disciples as orphans.
  • Jesus will come to the disciples (offsetting their position as an orphans).
  • The world does not see Jesus.
  • The disciples were to see Jesus when the world did not.
  • Because Jesus lives, the disciples were also to live.

Application:

I want to commit to memory: “Because I live, you also will live.”  I want to spend time meditating on His presence (not an orphan) and where I see Him.

Prayer:

Lord, thank you for giving me life!
