Christ Has Promised Us An Advocate

Christ came down to this earth with a very important mission to accomplish on behalf of humanity. The exact purpose of that mission was to restore humanity back to God by giving them eternal life. Praise God, this very mission was accomplished both victoriously and successfully the moment He voluntarily gave His life and resurrected three days later.

Having said that, there’s another important work that must be fulfilled in the life of those who have chosen to accept Him as their personal Lord and Savior. It’s such a great transformation that must be taken place continually.

That’s the key reason the Holy Spirit is sent by God to come and indwell those that believe in His only Son. His job is to empower us daily, so that we can live a victorious, fulfilling, and fruitful life for the glory of God.

Before Christ ascended to heaven, He had a conversation with His disciples regarding someone who will be sent by God in order to help them. He said to them, God will send you another advocate (John 14:16).

The term “another” means someone who is just like Him. Someone who will be as loving, caring, protective, and supportive as He is. He did speak about various functions that person will play in their lives. So among these are leading them into all truth, reminding them of everything He said, and teaching and helping them to understand the Word of God.

The Holy Spirit is sent to constantly remind us of who we are in Christ. He’s the One who testifies with our own spirit that we’re children of the most high God (Romans 8:16), which is indicative to how precious we’re to God. He’s the One who helps us to remain faithful to both God and His Word in the midst of trials.

He’s the One who empowers us to resist Satan and his field of temptation. He’s the One who reveals Christ to us. Lastly, the life that we must live through Christ revolves around what He’s doing through us for the glory of God. See Christian marriage.
