Have you ever been looking for answers but didn’t get the results you were looking for because you were asking the wrong questions? That happens all the time to me when I am looking for answers on Google. It gives me answers to questions I ask, but if I don’t ask the right question I don’t get the right answers.
In John 16 Jesus tells the disciples exactly that when he says,”None of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ Rather, you are filled with grief because I have said these things. But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away.” In essence he tells them that in their grief over the prospect of being separated from Jesus they are asking, “What will happen to us, how will we survive” when they should be focused on where he is going.
