Counsel and Help are Available through the Holy Spirit
Sun, Jan 26th
Jesus knew his departure from earth would be difficult for his disciples, so he sought to give them peace. Not only were they losing the physical presence of their teacher and friend, taking on the mission Jesus had trained them for would be daunting for them, and all the more so in his absence. So Jesus sought to give them peace by describing the counsel and help they would have through the Holy Spirit after he left. These works of the Spirit can provide peace for us today as well.
