John: The Gift of the Holy Spirit

John 16:5-14

Wouldn’t it have been great to have been there in Galilee when Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount? Wouldn’t it have been great to have been there in Judea when Jesus healed the blind man? I mean, what could be better than to have been present during Jesus’ earthly ministry? But, Jesus himself said, “Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, (John 16:7, ESV). What? Jesus’ departure would be for our advantage? Why would that be? Join us as we look at Jesus’ words to his followers on the night before his crucifixion as recorded in John 16:5-15.
