As we move to the heart of the “passion story”, its neat to know that Jesus’s love for humanity far exceeds the pain and agony that he face leading up to the cross and the cross itself. John 16 opens with the words from our Lord which read “All this I have told you so that you will not fall away” (John 16:1). Restoring humanity into a proper relationship in which draws us and reconciles us back to God was ultimately his real purpose for coming to earth. The highlight of this chapter is when Jesus says “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.” (John 16:16). Jesus knows that this day will be his last full day on earth. He wants to prepare them to live our their faith and abide by his truth as we learned about in the previous chapter. I personally long to see him one day and its amazing to know that his disciples who were listening to him are now with him again in paradise. His love his sufficient and I pray that you long to know him more and long to see him in his glory.
