John 14

John 14:16-17 & 26 “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” Vs. 26 “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.”

How Exciting! Jesus said that the Father would send a comforter or helper, this helper would be the Spirit of truth, his ‘job’ is to teach us all things, and bring unto remembrance what Jesus had said. This comforter or helper is called the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit (Vs. 26) and he will be with those who are believers forever (Vs. 16).

I don’t know about you but I think it’s exciting to know that God has sent part of himself to live in believers (Vs 16), to help them, and to teach them (Vs. 26).


Lord God thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to come and live in those who believe…. Thank you for sending him to teach us all things…. Thank you God for living in me…. Help me to become more like you each day….
