“His disciples said, ‘Ah, now you are speaking plainly and not using figurative speech! Now we know that you know all things and do not need anyone to question you; this is why we believe that you came from God.’” (John 16:29-30) Scripture Reading – Luke 18:9-17 The Upper Room discourse of Jesus in John 13-17 is packed full of deep truths that require lots of time to think and pray through in order to understand. There were no short-cuts in learning who Jesus was and what His mission was about. That’s why the Holy Spirit was given to the disciples. Without the Spirit, they as well as us, would not be able to fully understand the truths about Jesus. It appeared that the more Jesus taught, the

“I came from the Father and have come into the world, and now I am leaving the world and going to the Father.” (John 16:28) Scripture Reading – John 1:1-18 In this single sentence, Jesus summed up His Father’s plan of salvation. From heaven to earth and from earth to heaven, Jesus came to pay our debt of sin. And then He left earth and returned to heaven to show that the Father accepted that payment.

“In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you. Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” (John 16:23-24) Scripture Reading – Luke 11:1-13 Prayer is an important part of doing the greater works that Jesus said we would do. Immediately after telling His disciples that they would do greater works, Jesus promised that He would do whatever they asked, so that the gospel might be proclaimed to the ends of the earth (John 14:13-14). Then again in John 15, Jesus told His disciples that if they abide in Him, they can ask anything and He will give it to the
