What are ways we tend to seek approval from the world or seek comfort in it? What are the results of this? Why should we not do this, but find our approval and comfort in Christ?
What did Jesus say would bring sorrow? What would bring them joy? (16:20-22)
What does it mean that Jesus has “overcome the world” (16:33)?
What did Jesus say about prayer? How does this passage lead us to prayer?
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33).
