Daily Word Of God

John 16:5-11

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Now I am going to the one who sent me. Not one of you asks, “Where are you going?” Yet you are sad at heart because I have told you this. Still, I am telling you the truth: it is for your own good that I am going, because unless I go, the Paraclete will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

‘And when he comes, he will show the world how wrong it was, about sin, and about who was in the right, and about judgement: about sin: in that they refuse to believe in me; about who was in the right: in that I am going to the Father and you will see me no more; about judgement: in that the prince of this world is already condemned.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • In today’s Gospel Jesus explained to His disciples that it was for their sake that He must leave them to return to His Father. In His place he would send His Holy Spirit to show them the Truth of Christ and to lead and sanctify them.


  • We all need the Holy Spirit to lead us away from our sinful ways of think and living and to lead us to the way of God’s love and truth.


  • Pray for the graces we need to allow the Holy Spirit to free us from our sinful ways and set ablaze the fire of God’s love within our hearts and to live a more Christ-centred life.
