Day Four: The Paraclete

John 14:25-26 (NIV) 25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.’

“The entire Christian life can rightly be described as life in the Spirit. To live in the Spirit is neither to neglect the Father nor to eclipse Christ but to serve, respond to, and participate in them both by means of this divine appropriation.” [E. Klink III, John (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament)]

Following in the way-truth-life of Jesus is not about following rules. It is about following the Holy Spirit who guides and empowers us in the way-truth-life of Jesus. When we learn to walk with and in the Holy Spirit, we will find ourselves exactly where Jesus wants us to be.

Let’s pray: Father, teach us how to walk in step with your Spirit today. Help us to regularly hear and respond to the leading of your Spirit in all matters until it becomes seamless in our lives. In Jesus’ name, amen.
