Not all of us are called to be teachers or preachers, but all of us can give testimony as to how Jesus has changed our lives can we not? We can share how His love has filled us with peace and joy in our lives. Allowing the Holy Spirit to work through us so that we can give others hope for the love that we possess through Jesus.

The WORLD would rather we be silent, timid even afraid! Jesus tells us to be steadfast and strong for we have a powerful advocate with us who will guide us every step of the way.  Many will persecute us for our faith in the Lord, some even thinking they know God better, claiming to know what He wants and does not want. But we know our Shepherd’s voice and we follow Him. He alone will lead us home to our heavenly inheritance. Amen

GOSPEL John 15:26B16:4a

Jesus said to his disciples:“When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning. “I have told you this so that you may not fall away. They will expel you from the synagogues; in fact, the hour is coming when everyone who kills you will think he is offering worship to God. They will do this because they have not known either the Father or me. I have told you this so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you.”
