God Is For Us

I'M A CHRISTIAN...NOW WHAT?

The Greek word paraklētos literally means “one called alongside to help,” hence the idea of a comforter. The Holy Spirit is called another comforter because this is also one of Christ’s titles (1 John 2:1, transl. “advocate”). Illustration: The Father is also known as The God of All Comfort (2 Cor. 1:3). Though those in the early church often endured persecutions, they found their comfort in the Holy Spirit (Acts 9:31). Application: Today, Christians can find comfort in the Holy Spirit when trials come. (First Reference, John 7:37–39; Primary Reference, John 14:16–18; cf. John 7:39.)
