Good morning friends,
Today’s reading is from John’s gospel and includes some of Jesus’ important teaching on the Holy Spirit. Jesus tells the disciples that they will do even greater works than he has done through praying and his name and through the power of the Holy Spirit. With a promise like that, there’s no reason we can’t do great things for God’s kingdom.
12Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. 13I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it.
15”If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. 17This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.
