Departing words from someone we love are important. We hang on to every syllable and lean in to hear every word. Likewise, Jesus’ disciples listen intently to the final
life-altering and life-giving words of Christ, spoken to them in the Upper Room and recorded in John 13-16. The message Jesus speaks to the twelve is also His message to us; words of comfort, love, and warning. His final instructions. Lean in and listen.
