John 14:1-20 TPT

Don’t worry or surrender to your fear. For you’ve believed in God, now trust and believe in me also. My Father’s house has many dwelling places. If it were otherwise, I would tell you plainly, because I go to prepare a place for you to rest. And when everything is ready, I will come back and take you into me so that you will be where I am. And you already know the way to the place where I’m going.”

Thomas said to him, “Master, we don’t know where you’re going, so how could we know the way there?”

Jesus explained, “I am the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life. No one
comes next to the Father except through union with me. To know me is to
know my Father too. And from now on you will realize that you have seen him
and experienced him.”

Philip spoke up, “Lord, show us the Father, and that will be all that we need!”

Jesus replied, “Philip, I’ve been with you all this time and you still don’t
know who I am? How could you ask me to show you the Father, for anyone
who has looked at me has seen the Father. Don’t you believe that the Father
is living in me and that I am living in the Father? Even my words are not my
own but come from my Father, for he lives in me and performs his miracles
of power through me. Believe that I live as one with my Father and that my
Father lives as one with me—or at least, believe because of the mighty miracles
I have done.

I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing
in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles
than these because I go to be with my Father! For I will do whatever you ask
me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show
what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. Ask me anything in my
name, and I will do it for you!

Loving me empowers you to obey my commands. And I will ask the
Father and he will give you another Savior, the Holy Spirit of Truth, who will
be to you a friend just like me—and he will never leave you. The world won’t
receive him because they can’t see him or know him. But you will know him
intimately, because he will make his home in you and will live inside you.

I promise that I will never leave you helpless or abandon you as
orphans—I will come back to you! Soon I will leave this world and they will
see me no longer, but you will see me, because I will live again, and you will
come alive too. So when that day comes, you will know that I am living in the
Father and that you are one with me, for I will be living in you.
