Encounter with Jesus – October 15

October 15

Our incomparable friend

JOHN 14.16-18

Most of us don’t like to be alone for long periods of time. In fact, we were not created to live in isolation. From the beginning, God said. “It is not good for the man to be alone” (Gn 2.18). But sometimes there are situations in life that isolate us. Or maybe we just feel lonely, even though we live with our spouse or family. But whatever your situation, if you have Christ in your heart, you are never alone.

Knowing that his followers might feel abandoned after his crucifixion and ascension, Jesus promised to send them a Helper who would never leave them: the Spirit of truth. The same Spirit that came to them on the day of Pentecost still remains within every believer. He has been sent to walk with us as our comforter, enabler, and guide.

The Holy Spirit, unlike human beings, is perfectly competent to meet all of our needs. Because he knows us intimately, he can comfort us in pain and loss when no one else can. Every time we find ourselves in a dilemma, He knows exactly what to do. Since the future is uncovered before your eyes, you are aware of all the details that concern us. And he promises to guide us every step of the way, calming our fears and overcoming our shortcomings.

Because we have been created by God, only through his Spirit are we complete. He is the ultimate solution to man’s loneliness: he is always available and will never leave us or forsake us. When others let us down, the Comforter is present to remind us that we are not alone.
