John 13:7-10, 16-20, 27-29: 17:17-23

"completely separate from me and that nothing I could do would shelter him from his a loneness in the face of time, brutal events, the meanness of other human beings, his own wrong choices, the decay of his own body and finally death." Dallas Willard

1/3 of the population suffers from some type of mental health problem: mood, anxiety, psychotic, eating, development, and personality disorders. There are many causes for these problems but at the top of the list is this overwhelming feeling of loneliness or aloneness.

This powerful intrusive feeling is common to humanity because our original design was to be in fellowship with God and each other and because of the fall of man it has not been so. The fellowship with God must come before our fellowship with each other.

Romans 8:26-39 nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ our Lord.

Hebrews 13:5&6 He will never leave nor forsake us.

John 14:13-15 the way to enjoy this oneness relationship with God is to pray, obey and most of all have faith.

John 14:20-24; 15:1-11 He is your Father

John 10:3, 4, 14-16 Our Father works with us similar to how loving parents work with their children speaking and guiding as they need and allowing the child to think for himself and mature.

Mathew 28:18-20 we should have faith that our lord spoke the truth.

Psalms 16:11; 23:4; John 7:37-39
