Bible: John 14:15-26
Teaching on the Holy Spirit
14:15 “If 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.
14:18 “I 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.”
14:22 “Lord,” 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.
14:25 “I 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.
