15 aIf you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

Role of the Spirit

16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another 1aHelper, that He may be with you forever;

17 that is athe Spirit of truth, bwhom 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; aI will come to you.

19 1aAfter a little while bthe world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; cbecause I live, you will live also.

20 aIn that day you will know that bI am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.

21 aHe who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and bhe who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will cdisclose Myself to him.”

22 aJudas (not Iscariot) * said to Him, “Lord, what then has happened bthat You are going to disclose Yourself to us and not to the world?”

23 Jesus answered and said to him, aIf anyone loves Me, he will bkeep My word; and cMy Father will love him, and We dwill come to him and make Our abode with him.

24 He who does not love Me adoes not keep My words; and bthe word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.
