Tuesday of 6th week of Easter, based on John 16:5-11

Jesus said to the disciples, “But now I am going to him who sent me; yet none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts.

Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: about sin, because they do not believe in me; about righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will see me no longer; about judgment, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.

One thought on “Bittersweet Life in Christ

  1. Funny…my mantra during contemplation this morning was “let it go”. Then I listened to your preaching, a perfect affirmation of that message! Thank you!
