This Gift’s for You!
When we receive Jesus, He comes to be with us, and live in us by His Spirit, who is our ‘Counselor’, that we can know Him and live in Truth.
‘Counselor’ (paraklatos) = one who comes alongside to give aid/help.
*Person of indwelling Christ – not a religion, a relationship with Jesus who lives in me!
Our relationship with Christ is started by the Spirit, John 6:37-39, and sustained by the Spirit.
1. Jesus asked the Father to send another ‘counselor’ – one just like’ Jesus (the Way, the Truth and the Life). verse 16
2. The Spirit comes to live in us forever and not leave us as Jesus had to do. verse 17
3. The Spirit revels Jesus in us! verses 20-21
*Power of the indwelling Christ
