Daily Bread 7/22/2022


Daily Bread – July 22, 2022 (The Sixth Day – Genesis 1:24-31) John 14:26 – But the Paraclete, Who is the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My Name; He is the One Who will teach you everything and remind you of everything that I have spoken to you. The Holy Spirit is God, and is one with God (Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:6-7). He was sent to each believer from the Father because of what Jesus did for us through His death, burial, and resurrection (John 7:39, 14:17, 15:26; Acts 2:33). The Holy Spirit is called the Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, the Teacher, the Spirit of the Father, the Spirit of the Son, and the Paraclete (or Helper/Comforter). He is the One Who testifies of Christ, and shows us all that belongs to Christ Jesus and the Father. He is the One Who produces the miracle of salvation and empowers the believer to do the works of Christ. His authority in the Church and over us is absolute and essential for salvation (John 3:5-6; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:11). He is the One we are to follow, to obey, and to both live by and live through (Romans 8:1,4,9,14,16; Galatians 5:16,25). The Holy Spirit teaches us the ways of God and shows us how to walk in the divine nature (1 Corinthians 2:11-16; 1 John 2:20,27; John 16:13-15; 2 Peter 1:3-4). The Holy Spirit was the One Who empowered Jesus with the ability to do the works He did during His earthly ministry, and it was Holy Spirit Who was the focus of the ministry given to Jesus (John 1:32-33, 3:5-6, 4:23, 7:38-39, 20:22; Matthew 12:28).
