A Special Gift

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.  John 14:26 KJV

God intentionally made the coral reef.

The coral polyps are real live animals that build the reefs. We benefit from them in more ways than one. I have learned through the National Geographic channel on television that the coral reef protects our coastline from storms and erosion. A good part of the ocean’s fish depends on them. They raise their young among the crevices. People depend on the reefs for food and jobs. They are a special gift from God.

The Holy Spirit is another special gift from God to us. On the John Angerberg show, Anne Graham Lotz explained, “The Holy Spirit is Jesus without skin.” I couldn’t explain it any better than she.

The Holy Spirit is the comforter whom Jesus promised to send back to us when He returned to heaven. The Holy Spirit is many things to us, Advocate and Counselor included.

When we accept Jesus as Savior, the Holy Spirit comes in and has fellowship with us. He will lead, guide, and comfort us. Through the helping hands of doctors, nurses, ministers, and missionaries, the Spirit brings hope to hurting people. But He won’t come in without an invitation.

Have you invited Jesus into your heart? Let the Holy Spirit be your helper and comforter throughout life.
