Bible Verse

“But the Advocate, 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


In John 14:26, Jesus introduces us to the Holy Spirit as our Advocate. The Greek term for Advocate is “Parakletos,” meaning “one called to someone’s aid.” The Holy Spirit stands by our side, providing guidance, wisdom, and support.

Jesus emphasizes that the Holy Spirit will teach us all things. This means that the divine wisdom and understanding Jesus imparted are continuously accessible to us through our relationship with the Holy Spirit. We are not left alone to figure out life’s complexities; we have a divine teacher who enlightens us and clarifies God’s will.

Moreover, the Holy Spirit reminds us of everything Jesus has taught. In moments of doubt or forgetfulness, the Holy Spirit brings to mind the words and actions of Jesus, gently steering us back to the path of truth and righteousness. This constant reminder fortifies our faith and ensures that we are never far from the truth.

Understanding Jesus’ teaching about the Holy Spirit shifts our perspective from self-reliance to divine reliance. It invites us to be in constant communion with the Holy Spirit, allowing His guidance to lead us in all areas of life.
