HOLY SPIRIT: OUR TEACHER

TEXT: JOHN 14:26
“But the counsellor, 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).
Who is a teacher? A teacher is someone who is capable and willing to impart knowledge to others, for the purpose of changing and equipping them with knowledge that would transform them through out their lifetime. A teacher empowers, builds confidence and inspires students. To be a good teacher you must be caring, friendly, and be a motivator.
The Holy Spirit is the third person in the trinity, his role in our Christian walk is very vital that nobody can bypass him to be with God. As a Christian; you will need the help of the Holy Spirit to do whatever you want to do. Jesus assured us that the Holy Spirit that the father will send in his name WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS AND WILL REMIND YOU OF EVERYTHING HE SAID ( John 14:26). For you to make it in life you need the Holy Spirit to teach and direct you, your human wisdom can take you nowhere. When the Holy Spirit reveals things to you, it makes you to be extraordinary, you will move from the level of ordinary people (people that do things with head knowledge) to an extraordinary person.
For you to walk and be blameless before God, you need the Holy Spirit to bring into your remembrance all that the scripture has taught you.
The Holy Spirit is a friendly and caring teacher; he is always available and ready to assist his students. He does not depart from his students, he does not go on break, he does not have a closing time, and he does not go on leave! Whenever you call on him, he Is always ready to answer.

The Holy Spirit is the only one that gives you an assignment and he will be there to help you to get it done perfectly. “Faithful is he who has called you, who will also do it.” (1 Thessalonians 5:24). The Holy Spirit is the best teacher that motivates his students to believe in themselves that they can do all things (Philippians 4:13). It is through the help of the Holy Spirit that we don’t give up when we face any trial, because we know he is our present help in time of trouble. There are times that we may find ourselves in difficult situation that we need wisdom to deal with the situation. It is the help of the Holy Spirit that helps in giving us wisdom and utterance to deal with the situation. “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 12:11-12). Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you to do the extraordinary.
