… and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:5

Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge. 2 Corinthians 5:5

And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever the Spirit of truth. John 14:16–17a

God Almighty. God the Son. Jesus Christ who became Man. Chose to die in your place. Replaced the crown of Heavenly sovereignty with the crown of thorns. Jesus your beloved Saviour. He did it just for you.

The night before Christ’s crucifixion in the upper room. Jesus tells His beloved disciples of His imminent death and resurrection. Of His return to His Heavenly Father. The hearts of Jesus’ disciples are breaking. Sadness is their unbearable companion. Darkness fills their souls and their hearts.

Jesus as God Almighty reads their hearts. Feels their sorrow. Shares their pain. He now makes a promise that changes the world. Leaves a legacy that changes forever the future of all believers.

Changes the relationship between God and humanity. Jesus promises these disciples an inheritance of divine love. A love like nothing ever witnessed in the history of mankind.

Jesus asked His Father to send a Replacement. God answers. God your Heavenly Father who loves each and every one of His children. Agrees! God sends His Comforter. His Helper. God sends His Holy Spirit.

This gift from God. Jesus’ replacement is not only for these disciples. These believers. God’s Holy Spirit is for all believers throughout time.

This is Jesus’ Last Will and Testament to you. His inheritance to all obedient followers and believers. Jesus knew at that time He was returning to His Father in the Heavenly realm.

Jesus loved and worried about His disciples. His disciples have been with Him for three long years. Accompanying Christ on long, dusty hot journeys. These disciples have witnessed miracles
