“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever.” ~ John 14:16 NKJV
When Jesus was here on earth He was the disciple’s helper, but now that He’s gone into heaven the Holy Spirit is our helper. Jesus called Him “another Helper”. Another means one just like Me. The Holy Spirit is here to help us just like Jesus was here to help His disciples when He was on the earth. The awesome thing about the Holy Spirit is that He’s not just with us, He is in us!
When you think about it, Jesus trusted the whole future of Christianity to the Holy Spirit. When Jesus was on earth He kept things going in the right direction, but now that He’s gone into heaven the Holy Spirit is here to keep things going in the right direction. As soon as we give our lives to Jesus the Holy Spirit moves in and begins to help us. Think about the awesome Being that wants to lead our lives! We’d be foolish not to receive His help. Let me challenge you to begin to receive the help of the Holy Spirit by faith each day!
