Bits and Pieces: Instruction

"These things I have spoken to you, while abiding with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you," (John 14:25, 26).

* From the day of Pentecost down to the present, these promises by the Lord Jesus have been fulfilled. Two, among many, of the ministries that the Holy Spirit accomplishes in our lives, as believers, are those of teaching and reminding. He not only brings the truth of Scripture home to our hearts, but He also brings our wandering thoughts back to the Lord Jesus.

* In His compassionate wisdom, the Lord Jesus assures His saddened disciples that the soon-coming Holy Spirit would meet two of their greatest needs: instruction and remembrance. The Lord knew only too well their ignorance and forgetfulness. Isn't it good to realize that He knows ours, too?
