The Spirit's witness...
In the Upper Room Jesus emphasized that the distinctive
work of the Spirit whom the Father was going to send would
be in relation to himself, the Son; that the Spirit would
delight above all else to glorify or manifest the Son (Jn.
16:14); and that therefore in the spread of the gospel the
Holy Spirit would be the chief witness. 'He will bear
witness to me.' Only after saying this did Jesus add to
his apostles, 'and you also are witnesses' (Jn. 15:26-27).
Once we have grasped the significance of this order, we
shall have no difficulty in agreeing that "without his
witness ours is futile."
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
