But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.
John 14:26 ampc
The Holy Spirit is our Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strenghtener, Teacher and Standby.
The only way we can avoid sin in our life is by walking in Him every day;
But I say, walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit]; then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of the flesh (of human nature without God).
Galatians 5:16 amp
If we try to obey Jesus commands and serve Him and others by our own strength we will quickly become spiritually burned out. If we try to transform ourself by our own strength we will never succeed;
But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge]. And those who belong to Christ Jesus (the Messiah) have crucified the flesh (the godless human nature) with its passions and appetites and desires. If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.]
Galatians 5:22-25 ampc
His presence within us accomplishes this transformation. But for this transformation to occur we must obey the commands of our Lord Jesus;
The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.] Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.
John 14:21, 23 ampc
The more we obey Jesus the more we come to know Him, the more He becomes our priority. We all have a ministry in Christ but we all have one single purpose: to become Christ like. Every work the Holy Spirit does in us is for the purpose of producing Fruit to serve others and we get joy, peace, gladness, no matter the circumstances we are in, and we become more Christ like.
The Holy Spirit is our Teacher. If we truly want to know God and His ways only the Holy Spirit can teach us.
We must never depend on man’s teachings;
But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things], yet is himself to be put on trial and judged by no one [he can read the meaning of everything, but no one can properly discern or appraise or get an insight into him].
1 Corinthians 2:15 amp
We must renew our mind by reading God’s Word, listening to teachings, reading teachings etc.
Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
Romans 12:2 ampc
By obeying God, walking and living in the Holy Spirit and renewing our mind every day, we have all the necessary tools to be transformed in order to produce fruit and become more Christ like. We have all we need to run the race well! Blessings!!
