Part 2 of 10
Today, we are going to look at Jesus’ last teaching before He goes to the cross to die.
“But now I am going back to the Father who sent me, and none of you asks me where I am going. You are very sad from hearing all of this. But I tell you that I am going to do what is best for you. That is why I am going away. The Holy Spirit cannot come to help you until I leave. But after I am gone, I will send the Spirit to you.” (John 16:5-7)
1. Disciples must bear fruit for the kingdom! (John 15:1-16)
John 15:1-2 – “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.”
2. Disciples will suffer for the kingdom (John 15:18-27)
John 15:18 – “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.”
3. Disciples will have resources in the Kingdom (John 16)
John 16:12-15 – ‘I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.’
