Who do you compare yourself to? Join us as we continue our study of John and as Jeremy leads us through chapter 18 of this book
We get to listen in on the conversation between Jesus and his Father through the words of John 17 as he prays for himself, his disciples and his followers.
In this passage, Jesus tells his disciples that it is better that he goes away, then the Holy Spirit will come.
Who do you think Jesus us? This is an important question. The Christian life is a life of trust in Jesus. We live by faith and not by sight. It is not always an easy life. We are asked to take up our cross and follow Him.
