Just an ‘elfchen’ challenge.
Isn’t it great news that we don’t have to be/stay forlorn if we have the Lord Jesus Christ in our hearts and our lives?
Though I usually read the NIV, sometimes I just need the KJV for the right word. So when Jesus told the disciples in John 16:7 that he was going away, I like the word Comforter to describe the Holy Spirit.
“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.”
Thank him today for being our Comforter, our Advocate and our Redeemer!
