“I have spoken these things to you while I am still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.”
Here is the reason we ought to hold on tight to Jesus. We get an education from the creator of wisdom himself. The Holy Spirit. This is why any other way is darkness. If Jesus is who he says he is and if God the Father and the Holy Spirit really do join Jesus and make their home with us, then we receive the most amazing education possible.
In other words, without the Holy Spirit sent by Jesus active in our lives, we are uneducated.
What does the Holy Spirit do? According to Jesus, the Holy Spirit teaches us everything, including reinforcing the teaching of Jesus himself.
I take these words literally. If Jesus is the creator of mathematics, for instance, I invite him to be with me if I am studying Algebra. Now, I don’t mean you don’t have to study and just pray, “Jesus, give me all the answers on the test.” What it does mean is the most brilliant man who ever lived will be with you in your studies if you invite him in.
And the Holy Spirit will teach us everything about Jesus. Again, if we invite him in. Have you ever thought what it would be like to have been a disciple of Jesus 2000 years ago and learn from the Master Teacher himself? Well according to Jesus, we get to receive the same education. The Holy Spirit makes everything Jesus wants to pass down to us available now.
I will hold on tight to him.
What do you need Jesus’ help for?
