John 16:12-15

“Listening for the Spirit”

Jesus promise his disciples that even after he was gone they would receive guidance and truth.  He promised that the Spirit of truth would be there for them, and that this spirit would glorify him by declaring what belongs to Jesus.  Is this Spirit still active among us?  How can we recognize signs of its presence or absence?  What does it mean that, through the Spirit, Jesus is telling us new things?  How might we know whether what we hear and share with the world is glorifying Jesus?
