And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
We are still talking about living a spirit-filled life. we considered how that The Holy Spirit is our Comforter and our teacher. The best part of this is that “He will not come” to us, He is already in us. So when we say, He is our comforter, He is actually right where we are, and knows exactly how we are feeling. From that view-point, He can truly comfort us because He knows the pain we are going through by virtue of His very presence in us.
We also learn that He is our teacher. So living a Spirit-filled life is having our teacher with us right inside, not beside us, but in us. We know the things that He would teaches us, are things He has heard from the Father. The Father has already spoken to us through His word. Living a Spirit-filled life ensures us of walking and living the God kind of life. What kind of life is that? Someone may ask.
Its the life of faith, the life of God.The other thing the Holy Spirit does for us is to remind us,Of what? You may ask, of things we have been taught by the Lord. Notice, He will, “bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” Those are all things that He has said in His word. The word remembrance is interesting because you cannot remember something you have not been taught, have heard, or seen. We must read the word so that He has something to remind us of. The Lord said, “Whatsoever l have said to you.” His word must be taken as “what He has said to us.”
The Holy Spirit will comfort, teach, and bring us to remembrance of what Jesus has taught us through His word. Now, which word? There are 66 books in the Bible,Which word are we talking about? Please see in your SPREADING THE LIGHT BULLETIN next week.
