Nearing the end of our Gospel sprint through John...
What would you do in your last days here on earth? What does Jesus do? He comforts us and prays for us. Amazing love!
"So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you."
"In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."
"I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one."
Jesus is betrayed, arrested, accused, mocked, deserted, condemned, flogged, beaten, and crucified. And then he is buried. Thankfully, that is not the end of the story.
