“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” ~John14:16-18
Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would indwell all true believers. He knew that we could not make it through this life alone. Through our own strength we cannot live the Christian life effectively. It is simply impossible. But The Lord gives us exactly what we need.
No matter how alone you may feel, a born again believer is never alone. The Holy Spirit is Jesus’ promise to us. He is referred to as a Helper, an Advocate, and a Comforter. He helps us understand scripture and brings scripture back to our memory (John 14:26). He is God’s seal of salvation (Ephesians 1:13-14). Simply stated; He is the Best Friend we could ever have. Thank God for and take advantage of this immaculate friendship.
