This had been such an intense conversation Jesus had with the disciples. He's telling them He's leaving them which evidently brought them great sorrow, but He tries to comfort them by telling them He has to leave so the Holy Spirit can come. They had to be so confused. But the promise of the Holy Spirit our connection, our teacher, our guide.
It is also in this chapter where Jesus now tells the disciples they are now to ask the Father for things in His name. Working in Higher Education you get people who like to "drop names" but here Jesus tells His disciples and in turn us, USE MY NAME. Wow! Of course, it's not like rub the lamp get a wish from the genie.
