The disciples are nervous, scared, and confused that Jesus is leaving and apparently the world will turn against them. At this point, Jesus warns them of what will come so they will not fall away. Jesus wants the disciples to know that no matter what happens next, they are not alone. The Spirit will guide them. The Father loves them. Jesus will come back for them.
No matter what we can TAKE HEART because Jesus has won the battle, therefore we can trust what we can’t always see.
