Day 90 - John 16:1-11
Points to Ponder:
1.Why does Jesus tell him all these things about his departure and about their coming troubles?
2.Why is it a good thing that Jesus is leaving?
3.Of what benefit is the Spirit to us?
Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. It is for your benefit that I am going away, because if I don’t go away the Counselor will not come to you. If I go, I will send him to you. John 16:7
Lord Jesus, your Holy Spirit is of such a benefit to me. I would still be dead in unbelief if he had not stirred in my heart and raised me to life. I would still be blind and foolish when it comes to your Word and your salvation. I would still be living in life without any care at all about what is good and right. But your Spirit has changed all that and he continues to change all that in me. O Spirit, come! Come into my heart by the power of your Word and cast out all sin. Make my heart a temple set apart for you. Come, Spirit! Come into my mind and clear up my thinking about all things in this life, especially about your Word. Come, Spirit! Come into my hands and feet, in my whole being, and direct my life according to your Word. O Spirit, come! Come and live in me. Come and move in me. I need you to keep my faith alive and active. Amen.
