S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
Here Jesus, our Lord, introduces “The Advocate.” He of course was speaking of the precious Holy Spirit. He said, “If I go I will send Him to you.” We know that within days of Jesus ascending into heaven the Holy Spirit came down on the Believers in the upper room on the Day Of Pentecost. Surely Jesus kept His promise.
When The Lord said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Heb. 13:5-6), obviously it is through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit that this promise is fulfilled. Certainly our great God is omnipresent, and He is so by the personhood of “The Advocate.” Whenever you feel the presence of Jesus, that’s “The Advocate” you’re sensing. When you have questions in prayer and hear a still, small answer, that’s “The Advocate.” Whenever you’ve experienced heartbreak of any kind and suddenly there’s a comforting shoulder to lean on and you can’t detect who it is, I’m telling you that’s “The Advocate.” So you see, no Believer is happy that Jesus left, but if He hadn’t “The Advocate” would not have come. Thank God for “The Advocate.”
This AM I’m grateful Jesus that You sent “The Advocate.” Through my life I’ve experienced His power at least a thousand times. Thank You! Amen
