Woman Behold Thy Son…

John 19:25-27 KJV – 25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the [wife] of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own [home].

Even in crucifixion Jesus reveals his concern for those He loves. He sees His mother at the foot of the cross with the apostle John. Jesus knows that His mother will need someone to care for her after His death. He gives that responsibility to John.

The concern of Jesus is the same concern He has for you and for me. He is well aware of the hostile world around us and does not leave us without help. With Jesus departure after His resurrection He gives us His Holy Spirit to be our comfort and guide.

If you will give your heart to Jesus, you need not be afraid! Even when the world is in turmoil and is hostile to your beliefs as a follower of Christ, you will have peace in your heart.

We can know without doubt that we are the children of God because of the testimony of the Holy Spirit in our hearts. We can Look forward to all of the promises of God being fulfilled. When you invite the salvation the death and resurrection provides a whole new world opens to you. Do not wait. Invite Christ into your heart today!
