And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—
Before Jesus leaves His disciples, he assures them that he will give them an advocate to help and comfort them.
Jesus’ promise of the Holy Spirit offers us great comfort. We are not alone. Though He is not physically present with us, Jesus has sent the Holy Spirit to counsel and comfort us, leading us into truth. The Holy Spirit is sent by the Father and the Son to live in us, helping us to serve the Lord each day. Let us lean on Him, rest in Him, and be guided by Him in our walk with Jesus.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, thank you for sending the Holy Spirit. May He work in our lives as our counsellor and comforter, as we seek to follow you today and always.
