John 14:16 “I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; 17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
- How does the Spirit “help” us?
- Who does the Spirit “help”?
How does the Spirit “help” us?
- He Spirit convicts us of Sin and leads us to Jesus
- He empowers us to be like Jesus
- He fills us with love like Jesus
NOTE: The Cross dealt with my Sin, the Spirit deals with our heart
NOTE: Following the Spirit is = to following Jesus (Jesus was led by the Spirit)
Who does the Spirit help?
- He would help ANYONE
- He doesn’t help EVERYONE
- He can’t HELP those who do not know him
- He can’t HELP those who will not RECEIVE His help
NOTE: Heaven does NOT help those who help THEMSELVES, Heaven helps those who RECEIVE the Spirits HELP!
- The Spirit can be REJECTED
- The Spirit can be GRIEVED
- The Spirit can be RESISTED
Psa. 121:1 I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.
DO NOT try to do life all by yourself. We NEED help! There is HELP! Lesson 1 in the School of the Spirit is… The Holy Spirit “helps”! Ask for His HELP!
