Wesley's Notes for John 14:18


14:18 I will not leave you orphans - A word that is elegantly applied to those who have lost any dear friend. I come to you - What was certainly and speedily to be, our Lord speaks of as if it were already.

Discussion for John 14

    Jn. 14:10 - ".....but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works." This is the foreshadowing of Acts 2:38, "...... and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." The Holy Ghost is the same as God's spirit - which Jesus had in Him. As Jesus the man without God's spirit in Him could do nothing, so can we not do anything without God's spirit indwelling in us.

    Let nothing worry you if you're a child of God. Leave everything to Him and He will take care of all things. God is God and Jesus Christ is Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
