I will pray the Father, and He will give you
another Helper, . . . the Spirit of 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.
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. § You did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” § The Spirit … helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
The God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. § Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
John 14:16–17; 16:7; Rom. 8:16; 8:15; 8:26; 15:13; 5:5; 1 John 4:13
Shall I not seek security for you, that it may be well with you?
There remains … a rest for the people of God. § My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. § There the wicked cease from troubling, and there the weary are at rest. § They … rest from their labors.
The forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. § In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and
confidence shall be your strength.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.
