“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
The Holy Spirit is all about Truth and He awakens the Truth in us, authorizing us to live in the Truth and will bring about the fruit of the Truth that we live. Jesus tells us four things about the Holy Spirit, He is the friend that God sends to us, unbelievers cannot receive the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Truth will be inside the followers of Jesus Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit reminds us that Jesus will come again and claim His followers.
All people are sinners and the only difference between a non Christian and a Christian is a life that is sanctified by the Holy Spirit; a forgiven sinner that is being shaped and remolded by the Spirit of the Living God on a second by second basis.
You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.
Life can be a very rough ride with storm after storm after storm. The power of the Holy Spirit allows us to ride on top of that storm just like a surfer riding the waves. Keep the faith and believe. Even though a Christian still sins, there is happiness knowing when we repent and change our ways we will be forgiven. Does this gives us a free ticket to keep on sinning? No way! The more we know who Jesus is the less we will sin, but this is usually followed by attacks from Satan in our vulnerable spots. Praise God for sending us Jesus, where would we be without Him? I seem to be failing a lot lately and all I can say is thank you Jesus for loving someone like me.
