John 16:5-16 Jesus continues His intimate talk with the disciples by reminding them that He is sending an Advocate to help them take a stand in a world that hates them. The Holy Spirit’s job will be to convict the world and to guide the believers in the way of truth.
John 15:18-16:4 “You are My friends,” Jesus had just told His disciples. Next He cautions them that this friendship comes at a cost. They could expect to be misunderstood, rejected, hated and persecuted by the world. Are you ready to stand with Jesus no matter what?
John 14:15-31 Jesus presents the ultimate test for all His disciples. “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” Along with this more than difficult task, He offers comfort in the promise that a Helper is on the way.
