INTIMACY – Jesus’ disciples had a very intimate relationship with Him which is why it would have been so hard to think of Him leaving.
Jesus knew this, but He also knew that the same level of intimacy would be available through the Helper who was coming.
The Holy Spirit is now,
God with us.
Literally making His home within us;
always available to go to,
and find encouragement.
The Holy Spirit should be the greatest encourager in any Christians life.
What I mean by this is
unlike the world who the Holy Spirit is convicting of sin,
for every believer,
the Holy Spirit is
reminding us of our true identity.
