14 Revised Standard Version Passage

15"If you love me, you will keep my commandments.The Promise of the Spirit Jn.14.15-31
16And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you for ever, 
17even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you. 
18"I will not leave you desolate; I will come to you. 
19Yet a little while, and the world will see me no more, but you will see me; because I live, you will live also. 
20In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 
21He who has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me; and he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him." 
22Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?" 
23Jesus answered him, "If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 
24He who does not love me does not keep my words; and the word which you hear is not mine but the Father's who sent me. 
25"These things I have spoken to you, while I am still with you. 
26But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. 
27Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. 
28You heard me say to you, 'I go away, and I will come to you.' If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I go to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. 
29And now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place, you may believe. 
30I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me; 
31but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go hence.
