Have you ever wished that Jesus was still on earth? Do you know that there’s something even better than having Jesus stand right next to you?
“It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Friend will not come to help you. But if I go, I will send him to you. [John 16:7 NIRV]
Jesus said that it is BETTER for you to have this Friend (God’s Holy Spirit) than to have Jesus himself with you!
“But the Father will send the Friend in my name to help you. The Friend is the Holy Spirit. He will teach you all things.” [John 14:26 NIRV]
The Holy Spirit is your FRIEND, and this is what he does:
- he counsels and gives good advice
- he helps when you are in need
- he comforts and consoles when you are sad
- he prays on your behalf
- he represents you before God
- he teaches you all things
Dear friend, the Holy Spirit will always be with you! He is your FRIEND, and helps you in so many ways.
And Jesus says that’s even better than having him next to you!
