John 14:7-17 New International Version

7  If you really know me, you will know[1] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him." 8  Philip said, "Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us." 9  Jesus answered: "Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'? 10  Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11  Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.

12  Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13  And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

The Promise of the Holy Spirit

15  "If you love me, keep my commands. 16  And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever- 17  the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[2] in you.
