Jesus continues talking to His disciples.
We have seen that He has told them to…
- let not your heart be troubled
- believe God
- believe Me
- believe, believe, believe
- ask in His name
- love Me
- keep My commandments
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.
“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;
that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
Jesus told them He would give Another.
Another of the same kind…same “kind” as He.
Note the detail.
Jesus will ask Father.
Father will give another Helper.
The Helper will be with us forever.
The Helper is named - the Spirit of Truth.
The world cannot receive the Spirit.
Because the world does not see Him or know Him.
They/we know Him because He abides in us.
The Spirit is in you…in each true Believer.
So, the Spirit…
- Giving by Father at the behest of Jesus
- With us forever (that is interesting…into all eternity? Apparently&hellip
- Spirit of Truth
- Can not be received by the world
- World does not see Him
- World does not know Him
- Abides in us
- Will be with us.
Today, rejoice in the Spirit.
Quench not the Spirit.
Have not the Spirit?
Call upon the Lord…repent…confess…be saved…and the Lord will give His Spirit.
