“But the Advocate, (Comforter – kjv, Helper – NKJV, Counselor – RSV) the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and will cause you to remember everything I said to you.” – John 14:26
Ever need someone to comfort you? Can you think of a time when you just needed someone to help you? What about a counselor? Ever needed one? Ever paid for one?
Jesus is telling us that The Father will send the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will teach us everything, and will cause us to remember everything that He said.
How could I have lived so much of my Christian life with so little knowledge of the Holy Spirit? Learning to Hear God has helped me to grow in relationship to the Holy Spirit. My teaching has become so much more powerful because He is such a good teacher. Teaching by the Holy Spirit trumps Bible College and Seminary training—hands down!
Having the Holy Spirit as a counselor, friend, and helper has been the greatest discovery in deepening my relationship with God.
How about you? Anyone else agree?
