with Jeff Spencer
But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning. [John 15:26-27]
What does the Holy Spirit testify about Chirst?
1)He is bound to be faithful to the purpose of the one who has sent him.
2)He is the Spirit of truth. No matter if it is uncomfortable or unpopular he cannot compromise or withhold the truth.
3)He comes fresh from the presence of a passionately burdened Father - who He knows intimately - desperate to redeem His creation)
How do you think the Holy Spirit could use the gifts he has given you to help fulfil the mission he is sent on? When do find it hardest to maintain the truth in a hostile world?
