But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

– John 16:7 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

There are many people who wish that they could have lived during the time of Christ, but that would have been problematic. Jesus was only one place at a time, He had already chosen His disciples, and His mission on earth was clear – to go to the cross. But when He rose again, He sent the Holy Spirit to all of us. We are actually in a better place, for the Spirit is everywhere, He has chosen us, and He guides us in the mission of God’s people. This is the greatest time to be alive when it comes to the purposes of God.
