Imagine Jesus going with you out the door every morning. Wherever you’re off to, it’s a place God wants to spread His Love. We never know what opportunity may come our way or who God might put in our path.
Where are you sharing God’s love? In a church? A school? An office? Among the poor? The homeless? A foreign country? A prison? A nursing home? Wherever you go, you have the opportunity to show God’s love.
Jesus told his disciples,
“But I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I am leaving; for if I do not leave, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.” John 16:7 NASB
That is a remarkable statement Jesus made! How could it be better if he went away?
It’s better because when Jesus walked this Earth, He was only available when he was physically present. But now, the Holy Spirit is always with the believer and ready to help us. Today, the believer can truly walk with Jesus every day. He is always with us through the Holy Spirit.
Diligently studying God’s Word every day will do more to strengthen you and prepare you for God’s service than anything else. Not only will the Holy Spirit give you understanding about what you are reading, but He will also bring it to your remembrance when you need it later.
“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.” John 14:26 NASB
What a privilege! Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to help us each day!
This message is simple, but also essential to the Christian walk.
“In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words.” Romans 8:26 AMP
“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another [a]Helper, so that He may be with you forever; 17 the Helper 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 remains with you and will be in you.” John 14:15-17 NASB
Trying to do the Lord’s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you.”
