But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me; and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged. “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you.” ~ John 16:7-14
Jesus promised the disciples that the Helper, the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit after He left. Even today, more than two thousand years after Jesus walked the earth as a man, we who are believers have the Holy Spirit living within us. How amazing to think that we have the Lord living in us to guide us and help us and lead into all truth!
Lord God, thank You for the Holy Spirit. Let me always recognize and follow His guidance in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
