Why Is Jesus' Departure Best?

The Ascension of Christ

Preached by: Phill Howell | 05/23/21

Scripture/Text: John 16:4-15; The big idea for this weeks sermon from John 16:4-15 is that Jesus' ascension was not only necessary, but is in fact better than if he had remained on the earth. While this is a difficult promise for modern westerners to grasp, Jesus assures his disciples in the Gospel of John that for him to leave is better because he is sending the Holy Spirit, who will work through Jesus' followers to convict the world of injustice and sin, to transform and guide believers, and ultimately to bring praise to Jesus' name.
