Bible: John 14:23-31

14:23 Jesus replied, 1 If anyone loves me, he will obey 2  my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and take up residence with him. 3  14:24 The person who does not love me does not obey 4  my words. And the word 5  you hear is not mine, but the Father’s who sent me.

14:25I have spoken these things while staying 6  with you. 14:26 But the Advocate, 7  the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you 8  everything, 9  and will cause you to remember everything 10  I said to you.

14:27Peace I leave with you; 11  my peace I give to you; I do not give it 12  to you as the world does. 13  Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage. 14  14:28 You heard me say to you, 15 I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad 16  that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am. 17  14:29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe. 18  14:30 I will not speak with you much longer, 19  for the ruler of this world is coming. 20  He has no power over me, 21  14:31 but I am doing just what the Father commanded me, so that the world may know 22  that I love the Father. 23  Get up, let us go from here.” 24
