Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church from the Gospel of John:
12 I have much more to tell you,
but you can’t bear to hear it now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes,
she will guide you into all truth.
She won’t speak on her own initiative;
rather, she’ll speak only what she hears,
and she’ll announce to you
things that are yet to come. 14 In doing this, the Spirit will give glory to me,
for she will take what is mine
and reveal it to you. 15 Everything that Abba God has
belongs to me.
This is why I said that
the Spirit will take what is mine
and reveal it to you. 16 Within a short time you won’t see me,
but soon after that you’ll see me again.”
This is the word of the Lord. Thanks be to God
