John 16:5-11

5 But now I am going to the one who sent me, and not one of you asks me, 'Where are you going?'

6 But because I told you this, grief has filled your hearts.

7 But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.

8 And when he comes he will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation:

9 sin, because they do not believe in me;

10 righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me;

11 condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.

It seems crazy that the the disciples would be better off with the Holy Spirit than they were with Christ with them, doesn't it? It's a mind blowing thought for me, but if Christ says it, it must be true, because He is truth.

I wish I could keep myself fully aware of this, and that I could always be conscious of the fact that Christ HAS sent his Holy Spirit, and it IS here for me. It's so easy to forget about it and just go on, trying to move through the world on my own.
