This is my personal summary of Rev Dr Stephen Tong's sermon on 7 October 2012 in STEMI Expository Preaching at True Way Presbyterian Church Singapore. It was preached in Chinese with English translation.
This is the emphasis of John 16 – “But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.” (John 16:7) This is the turning point. The Counselor will comfort, strengthen, guide, affirm you and be with you forever. This is the new direction where the Church will be victorious. The Holy Spirit is the foundation of the Church’s victory.
