Yesterday we were talking about the role the precious Holy Spirit of God plays in the Christian's life today. The passage I used is just so marvelous that I wanted to share more of it with you today.

Sadly so many Christians think this has passed away, but read verse 16..."that He may be with you forever"!!! What great news that is!

If you read all of Chapter 14 you will see that Jesus was comforting His beloved followers that even though He was about to give His life for the sins of all and they would see Him here no more, that by His going to the Father, the Father would send this marvelous Comforter to us, to COMFORT us and to TEACH us.

You can see in verse 17 that Jesus intended the Holy Spirit to live in all His followers forever, for these purposes - not just for a short while and then the rest of the generations on earth would be left without comfort, without this intimate level of communion with Him, left without the divine teacher to teach us the truth of Jesus and open the deep mysteries of the Bible to us. He loved all those who would believe in every generation and provided the Holy Spirit to "be with you forever"!!!! This is such great news!

16"I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;

17that 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.

18"I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

19"After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.

20"In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.

21"He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him."

22Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, "Lord, what then has happened that You are going to disclose Yourself to us and not to the world?"

23Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.

24"He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.

25"These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you.

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

27"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. John 14:16-27

Just a reminder, these three "artsy" bows look best on dark backgrounds. They are so much cooler than they look here - give them a try!
