Promises of Jesus in John 14

  • I am preparing a place for you in my Father’s house and I will bring you there
  • I am the way the truth and the life
  • I am in the Father and the Father is in me. If you have seen me you have seen the Father
  • I will do whatever you ask in my name, even greater than what’s been done, so that the Father may be glorified
  • The advocate, the Spirit of truth, I will send you and will be in you
  • Peace I give to you and peace I leave with you
  • The ruler of this world has no power over me
  • I will not abandon you, but I will come to you
