Role of the Spirit

16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another [a](A)Helper, that He may be with you forever; 17 that is (B)the Spirit of truth, (C)whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

18 “I will not leave you as orphans; (D)I will come to you. 19 [b](E)After a little while (F)the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; (G)because I live, you will live also. 20 (H)In that day you will know that (I)I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 21 (J)He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and (K)he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will (L)disclose Myself to him.” 22 (M)Judas (not Iscariot) *said to Him, “Lord, what then has happened (N)that You are going to disclose Yourself to us and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered and said to him, (O)If anyone loves Me, he will (P)keep My word; and (Q)My Father will love him, and We (R)will come to him and make Our abode with him. 24 He who does not love Me (S)does not keep My words; and (T)the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.

25 “These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. 26 But the (U)Helper, the Holy Spirit, (V)whom the Father will send in My name, (W)He will teach you all things, and (X)bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. 27 (Y)Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. (Z)Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. 28 (AA)You heard that I said to you, ‘I go away, and (AB)I will come to you.’ If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced because (AC)I go to the Father, for (AD)the Father is greater than I.
