Bible Verse of the Week: John 14:26

"But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you." -John 14:26

Although sometimes overlooked, the Holy Spirit is the One Who opens our eyes to understand the Word and discern what God is speaking to us. As this verse states, we do not have to be concerned about what we will say when we are challenged because the Holy Spirit abides in us. An example of this is in Acts 4 when Peter and John were questioned what power allowed them to heal the lame man. Verse 8 says that Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit and answered that the man was healed by the name of Jesus Christ. Upon hearing this confident response, none could find fault in them. In order for you to be filled with the Holy Spirit, I encourage you to hear the Voice at the door of your heart and open the door to let Him come in. ~Jesselyn
