Standing on the Promises

8 Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” 9 Jesus said to
him, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever
has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, “Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not
believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do
not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11 Believe me that
I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of
the works themselves. 12 Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the
works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the
Father. 13 I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in
the Son. 14 If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it. 15 “If you love me, you
will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another
Advocate, to be with you forever. 17 This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot
receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides
with you, and he will be in you. (Jn. 14:8-17 NRSV)
