Before He died, Jesus said it would be better for His followers that he was leaving because the Father was going to send a Counselor, the Holy Spirit.
We often think of what it would be like to be in Jesus’ presence at the time He lived. He said that it is better to live in the era of the Spirit than to walk with Him on the earth.
It’s because the Holy Spirit can play so many roles in our lives.
- He offers guidance by leading us to truth.
- He gives us the power to live.
- He presents us unconditional acceptance and assurance.
- He enters fully into our grief.
- He edits our prayers.
Just to exist in this world, we would be foolish not to take advantage of all the Holy Spirit offers us.
