We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.
Yesterday we started a new series: JESUS ON …
We’ll be taking a look at what Jesus said about a variety of absolutely critical, life-altering subjects in his own words with a minimum of commentary from me.
We kicked things off yesterday with what Jesus said about God the Father. Today’s topic? JESUS ON THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Here is a greatest hits collection of verses straight from the mouth of Jesus on the Holy Spirit. Meditate on ’em. Marinate in ’em. Memorize ’em.
No one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. (John 3:5-8)
I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. (John 14:16)
The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John 14:26)
When [the Spirit] comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment; in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. (John 16:8-11)
When he, the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. (John 16:13)
Anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say. (Luke 12:10b-12)
If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him! (Luke 11:13)
You will receive power when the Holy spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8)
