“Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me.
If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also.
You know where I go, and you know the way.”
Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going. How can we know the way?”
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.
Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I tell you, I speak not from myself; but the Father who lives in me does his works.
But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.
Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, I give. Don’t let your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful.
Now I have told you before it happens so that when it happens, you may believe.
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer.
You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me.
If a man doesn’t remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
“In this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be my disciples.
If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love.
