QT 25/04/2024 Thursday John 16. Prepare for trouble & joy.

Jesus continued to build up His followers' faith, who were going to face struggles ahead because of those who believe in killing the followers as "offering service to God" (John 16:2).

Jesus gave them ample notice and mental preparation (John 16:3-4). He promised them the Holy Spirit who would "take what is mine and declare it to you" (John 16:14). There would be confidence in the content of Christian teaching.

Furthermore, His followers' joy would be overwhelming and enduring (John 16:20-22). Their requests to the Father would be answered (John 16:23-24).

Even though Jesus informed them of His own departure, He assured them of the purpose of these teachings, "that in me you may have peace" (John 16:33).

MEMORY VERSE: In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world (John 16:33).

APPLICATION: Focus your minds on these wonderful promises and resources from Jesus so that your thought world would not be captured by wasteful processing of junk every waking moment.
