“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the spirit of truth.” This passage is from the 14th chapter of John. Christ is speaking of the Holy Spirit.
It is the Holy Spirit that rattles the sabre within our soul. It is the Holy Spirit that leads people to faith. It is the Holy Spirit that brings people to a community of faith and leads them to be baptized, join the church, lead bible studies and read to the children at the school.
God still speaks, Christ still reveals, the Holy Spirit still moves people to step out of their comfort zone and leads them to deeper levels of faith. Speaking to us through this life that is oftentimes difficult, confusing, hard and beyond understanding at times.
It is the work of our God and of the Holy Spirit that beckons us to live intentional lives of faith.
