Holy Spirit Work
Page 88


CounsellorThe Holy Spirit work in us was to direct and also to uphold the men and women of God wherever they may be. The Psalmist wrote in Psalm 139.10 that wherever you are, "even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast." Jesus also described the Holy Spirit work in the Christian in John 14.26, "But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you." The Holy Spirit was a reminder, a teacher and a prompter. God the Father sent the Spirit, in the name of Jesus, to enable Jesus followers to engage in a teaching and counseling ministry. He was called the Advocate and that in a word is the Holy Spirit's work - to advocate like a lawyer or a counselor. Again John 15.26 recorded the words of Jesus, "When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father — the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father — he will testify about me."

Spirit of Truth

The Holy Spirit was often called "the spirit of truth" and Jesus described the Spirit's role in his ministry in John 16.13, "But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come." The Holy Spirit bore witness to Jesus and this is a sure sign that he is at work if the gospel is being preached as a result of the Spirit's work.✞
