Bible: John 14:15-26

Teaching on the Holy Spirit

14:15If you love me, you will obey 1  my commandments. 2  14:16 Then 3  I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate 4  to be with you forever 14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept, 5  because it does not see him or know him. But you know him, because he resides 6  with you and will be 7  in you.

14:18I will not abandon 8  you as orphans, 9  I will come to you. 10  14:19 In a little while 11  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 12  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 13  them is the one who loves me. 14  The one 15  who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will reveal 16  myself to him.”

14:22Lord,” Judas (not Judas Iscariot) 17  said, 18 what has happened that you are going to reveal 19  yourself to us and not to the world? 14:23 Jesus replied, 20 If anyone loves me, he will obey 21  my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and take up residence with him. 22  14:24 The person who does not love me does not obey 23  my words. And the word 24  you hear is not mine, but the Father’s who sent me.

14:25I have spoken these things while staying 25  with you. 14:26 But the Advocate, 26  the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you 27  everything, 28  and will cause you to remember everything 29  I said to you.
