Bible: John 14:16-31; 16:7-15
14:18 “I will not abandon 6 you as orphans, 7 I will come to you. 8 14:19 In a little while 9 the world will not see me any longer, but you will see me; because I live, you will live too. 14:20 You will know at that time 10 that I am in my Father and you are in me and I am in you. 14:21 The person who has my commandments and obeys 11 them is the one who loves me. 12 The one 13 who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will reveal 14 myself to him.”
14:22 “Lord,” Judas (not Judas Iscariot) 15 said, 16 “what has happened that you are going to reveal 17 yourself to us and not to the world?” 14:23 Jesus replied, 18 “If anyone loves me, he will obey 19 my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and take up residence with him. 20 14:24 The person who does not love me does not obey 21 my words. And the word 22 you hear is not mine, but the Father’s who sent me.
14:25 “I have spoken these things while staying 23 with you. 14:26 But the Advocate, 24 the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you 25 everything, 26 and will cause you to remember everything 27 I said to you.
14:27 “Peace I leave with you; 28 my peace I give to you; I do not give it 29 to you as the world does. 30 Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage. 31 14:28 You heard me say to you, 32 ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad 33 that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am. 34 14:29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe. 35 14:30 I will not speak with you much longer, 36 for the ruler of this world is coming. 37 He has no power over me, 38 14:31 but I am doing just what the Father commanded me, so that the world may know 39 that I love the Father. 40 Get up, let us go from here.” 41
