Sermon by The Rev. Brett P. Backus
Sunday, May 21, 2017
“You, each one of you, has had the very Spirit of God poured upon you. And now you are each bound, bound together in this community in the body of Christ, bound to the divine being itself.” From The Rev. Brett P. Backus’ sermon on May 21, 2017.
The Gospel: John 14:15-21
Jesus said, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. 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. I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.”
