The Holy Spirit, My Comforter

The Holy Spirit is the one that lives in us and guides us in our daily lives. He is the one that speaks to us in the still small voice telling us what to do and what not to do. The Holy Spirit is the one who brings back to our remembrance scriptures in different situations to comfort and remind us.

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14:26 (KJV)

The Holy Spirit teaches us all things (1 John 2:27). He helps us to understand what we read in the Bible. He gives us wisdom and revelation. He guides us into the truth of who God is and what His Word says. The Holy Spirit only speaks what He hears the Father say.

Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth is come, He will guide you into all truth. For He shall not speak of Himself  but whatsoever He shall hear that shall He speak and He will shew you things to come. John 16:13 (KJV)

When we let the Holy Spirit guide us and have His way in us, it produces fruit. The fruit of  the Spirit seen in Galatians 5:22-23 can be seen as the different aspects of the character of Jesus Christ. The fruit of the Spirit portrays who Jesus is and who we are called to be. We are called to be loving, joyful, to have self control, etc.  As we let God have His way in our lives, we become more like Jesus and we are conformed to the image of Christ.

Let the Holy Spirit speak to you and lead you into all truth.
