Joh 16:5 But now I am leaving for him who sent me, and not one of you asks me, ‘Where are you leaving for? ‘
Joh 16:6 Yet, because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.
Joh 16:7 Nevertheless, I am saying the truth to you. It is advantageous to you that I go away, because if I don’t go away the Discipler will not come to you. If I go, I will send him to you.
Advantageous for us
It was advantageous for us that Jesus returned to heaven. Although we certainly look forward to his return, we have the other discipler, the Holy Spirit, who continues his ministry among us and through us.
Lord, thank you for sending the Discipler,your Holy Spirit.
