John 14:21-26

"Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”
Judas, not the Iscariot, said to him, “Master, [then] what happened that you will reveal yourself to us and not to the world?”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.
Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; yet the word you hear is not mine but that of the Father who sent me.

“I have told you this while I am with you.
The Advocate, the holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name—he will teach you everything and remind you of all that [I] told you."

Reflection:

God never gives us a task for which he does not equip us with everything that we need. He never leaves us to do the work by ourselves, rather He is always there, aiding and assisting us, strengthening and protecting us until the work he has asked us to do is accomplished.
