To Ponder

Sinclair Ferguson, The Holy Spirit

“[The disciples] feared that they would know less of Christ and that their…intimacy would come to an end when he departed from them. Now he taught them that in fact they would know him better and understand more about him and their relationship with him…From [the Spirit] the disciples learn that they are ‘in’ Christ and Christ also dwells in them. Rather than ‘losing’ him, they will gain him in a more intimate way. In keeping with this, union with Christ becomes virtually the central theme of the rest of the New Testament.”
