The Promise

The Holy Spirit

John 14-17 Jesus assures the disciples that He will not leave them as orphans but will send them the Helper, the Holy Spirit. He will teach them and recall to their memories all the things Jesus has taught them. He will be their comforter, teacher, guide, memory recaller, and so much more. He is our lifeline to the very presence of God. He will bring to our minds things we have been taught but mostly scripture we have read. As Jesus talked to the disciples, he gave them this promise: ‘Then I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you forever.” [Jn 14:16] He will bring peace to your hearts in times of uncertainty. When “he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. For he will not speak on his own authority but will speak whatever he hears and will tell you what is to come.” [Jn 16:13] His whole purpose is to glorify the Son.

What a glorious promise to know that Jesus prayed that God send the Holy Spirit to us and for us. We are to exemplify His Fruit to the lost so that many may receive the promise! Look at the list in the attached photo and let the Spirit teach you what you are lacking so you may be His instrument to lead someone to Christ.
