Can we bear the truth yet?

 
Wednesday of the 6th week of Easter, based on John 16:12-15

(this preaching appeared originally on theWord on 30 April 2008)


Jesus said to his disciples:“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
