Share your “highs” and your “lows” for the past week with each other.
12 ‘I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.13When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
What surprises you or engages you in this reading? The Trinity can be a really “weird” concept; 3 in 1? Well perhaps a better way of thinking about it is that God is beyond our full understanding, however God has chosen to “reveal” Godself through the image of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is God’s “self-declaration” that we use to try and understand who God is and what God is about. What does God’s “self-revelation” say about who God is to you?
Special prayer requests: Pray for new life for all people suffering brokenness, pain, suffering or death.
Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each one’s forehead.
