Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
-After His death and resurrection, Jesus went away to the Father but He did not leave us orphaned but gave us the Holy Spirit. At the cross Jesus destroyed the power of satan and through His love sanctifies us by His blood that we may be holy as we hold fast our faith in Him. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit and are always reminded to depart from evil and remain in the righteousness of God as we repent and believe in the gospel of Christ. Jesus promised that rivers of living water will flow from the innermost being of those who believe in Him (Jn 7:37-38). The Holy Spirit gives us the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self control, that we may remain in Him as He is in us. He also grants us spiritual gifts of healing, faith, wisdom, knowledge, discernment, speaking in tongues, interpretation of tongues, performing miracles, prophecy, that manifest His great power for the glory of His name (1 Cor 12:7-10). Noah was warned of the coming judgment, he believed and was saved. Abraham believed in God and it was accounted to him for righteousness. We too are reminded to believe in Christ which is our account for righteousness and offers us a guarantee of an eternal inheritance with Christ our Lord (Jn 3:16).
Sanctify our hearts, minds and bodies Holy Spirit that we may be holy. Fill us with Your gifts and fruit and help us always as we hold fast our faith in You. Have mercy Holy Spirit on the armed forces all over the world that You may protect them and grant them peace. We pray for all the war torn countries that You may grant them rest. Be with all the nations which have been affected by Ebola and other deadly diseases that You may heal them Jesus. Have mercy on all our schools, our children and teachers that they may always seek You in they do and have good success. Remember all our leaders including our president Lord that they may seek You first in all their assignments and govern the nation according to Your purpose. We pray for all those who neither know You nor believe in You that You may bring them to faith. Be with all our churches Holy Spirit; that You may impart us with Your graces as we witness You to the world. Remember us Lord in our work, studies, businesses, families that You may answer all our heart desires according to Your will. Grant us Your grace everywhere we go that we may always radiate Your love; Jesus. Amen
