“When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who comes from the Father, he will testify on my behalf. You also are to testify because you have been with me from the beginning.”
Food for Thought:
In this passage of Scripture, the Gospel writer John talks about the Holy Spirit as the advocate. How would you define advocate? Have you ever been an advocate for someone else? Has someone been an advocate for you? What do you think is the role of the Christian to be an advocate for the least, the lost, and the hurting?
Creator Spirit and Giver of life, make the dry, bleached bones of our lives live and breathe and grow again as you did of old. Pour out your Spirit upon the whole creation. Come in rushing wind and flashing fire to turn the sin and sorrow within us into faith, power, and delight. In your holy name we pray, Amen.
