Monday John 16:1-33
Jesus speaks a sad reality to the disciples—He will be leaving them soon. In the midst of bad news, Jesus continues to encourage them. Why has Jesus spoken these things? “So that you won’t fall away.” Jesus lost one of the disciples to evil… He’s doing everything He can to prepare the remaining eleven for the temptations ahead. He says the same to us as well. What do you sense He is telling you, especially through these words in today’s passage?
