John 14 verses 16 to 17

“And I will pray the Father,
and He will give you another Helper,
that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth,
whom the world cannot receive,
because it neither sees Him nor knows Him;
but you know Him,
for He dwells with you and will be in you.”
(John 14:16 – 17)

As you read these two verses
You either get it or you don’t

It truly is simple, so simple that we so easily miss it
The Bible means what it says
And Jesus means what He says

Yet we so often let our brains rule our decisions
And live by what we think rather than by what we believe

The Holy Spirit will be with us FOREVER
And He DWELLS with us and will be IN us

Almighty God LIVING inside us
Where…?
How…?
Inside ME!?
Really!?

Our brains, human wisdom, understanding, logic…
Can make no sense of this concept
Yet by FAITH and godly wisdom it makes PERFECT sense

Jesus said it
I believe it
That settles it

So as a Disciple of Jesus
He is comforting me and reassuring me,
As He was with the first Disciples
That I will always have the Holy Spirit in me
That He dwell with me and I with Him

And the Holy Spirit is the Helper
Who will lead me into all truth
Since He is the Spirit of truth
