Jn 15:26 – 16:4A
You will not fall away
Jesus said to His disciples that he would send them the spirit of truth. He told them this so that they would not fall away when the hour of persecution came. Then he explains that those who persecute them don’t know either Jesus or God the Father--persecution is the fruit of ignorance, it is therefore an opportunity to testify!
We have a reason to be confident even when facing persecution for He has been with us from the beginning. We should not be afraid to testify Jesus to the world for we know the truth. Let this truth be spread to people who ignore Jesus and the Father.
Jesus is inviting us to spread the truth and let the people who don’t know him experience His love through us. Let us be confident in this task, for the spirit of truth is within us.
