The Work of the Holy Spirit -3-

I think we have discussed the names given to the Holy Spirit, but I would like to refresh our minds on this and also it pertains to His work in and for us.  He is our Helper, Comforter, Guide, Teacher.  there are probably more, just can't think of them just now.  These are titles given to Him as He works in us to help us, comfort us, guide us and teach us.  We have so much help from Him, how can we fail to be In Christ as we learned we should be.  We have all heaven at our bidding.  Also angels to guard us and lift us up when we fall, so much help, if we fail it will not be heavens fault, it will be ours.

John 14:16,17  (Jesus speaking to the disciples)  "I will pray the Father and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever - the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him or knows Him; but you know Him for He dwells with you and will be in you."  No need to fail with the Holy Spirit with us forever and dwelling with us and being in us.  What a promise!!

John15:26 (Jesus speaking)  "But when he Helper comes whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me."

John 14:26  "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and  bring to remembrance all things that I said to you."

John 16:7,8  (Jesus speaking)  Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I go not away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to  you.  And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin and of righteousness, and of judgement."

John 16:13,14  "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take what is Mine and declare it to  you."

Acts 2:1-4  "When the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, an it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.  Ad they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."

1 John 4:13  "By this we know that we abide in Him, because He has given us of His Spirit."

We have so much help in our daily lives, if we will just ask for it and believe that Christ bestows all this help upon us if we will just accept it and let Him help us, guide us, comfort us, and teach us.  What more could He do for us.  I know we live in a very wicked world but we have all the help we need not to participate in the wickedness if we will just stay connected to Christ and remain in Him.
