First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read John 14.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical -- The night before Jesus died, Jesus taught His disciples about His connection to God the Father, His upcoming trip to heaven, Him sending the Holy Spirit after He ascends to start the Spirit's New Testament ministry, and Jesus' return to earth (i.e. The Second Coming).
- Doctrinal -- In verse 17, Jesus taught how the Holy Spirit operated differently in the Old and New Testament: in the Old Testament the Spirit dwelled WITH people; in the New Testament the Spirit dwells INSIDE people.
- Inspirational -- Whenever I wonder what God think or feels about a situation, I should think about what Jesus thought or felt (see verse 9).
