Availing Ourselves

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
John 14:16

Before Jesus rejoined His Father He promised He would give us another Comforter Who would abide with us for ever. This Comforter is His Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit contains all the love, power and truth of God thee Father and God the Son. He is available to all believers. Our question is are we availing ourselves of the love, power and truth God has made available to us? The instructions on how to avail ourselves of His Holy Spirit are in the Holy Bible. There is no way to escape the need for diligent study of the Holy Bible and receiving insight and understanding through prayer and meditation on what we study. Many put a lot of effort in learning how to play a sport well or cook well or learn all they can about some other activity. When it comes to the spiritual realm, the most important realm that will last through all eternity, we become lazy. Let us keep our priorities right. Let us learn to proportion our time and efforts in line with the lasting effects of our choices.
