Jesus and His disciples were in Jerusalem, celebrating the Passover and the time had come for Jesus to prepare His disciples for the road to the cross.
Previously, Jesus comforted His disciples when He revealed He would send a divinely appointed Helper to guide each believer as each one continues our walk along the narrow path that leads to God and His kingdom.
“26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.” (John 15:26)
Who is this Helper and how can He help us? Jesus then takes pleasure in teaching us that the Holy Spirit is a part of Him who resides in the hearts and minds of those who belong to Him, who ARE him.
The truth is, the Helper is the Holy Spirit, the spirit of God who is sent to dwell within those who place their trust in Jesus, the promised Savior and Lord of all. The Helper is the water, the sunlight and all that a spiritual vine of Christ needs to thrive.
Just as Jesus was God in the flesh, the Spirit is God in spirit form and it is through Him that God leads and inspires believers to walk in the Light and spread the truth about the Messiah.
“27 And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning.” (John 15:27)
Then, Jesus once again called on His disciples to be witnesses to what they saw and heard, to share this truth with all those who will listen. This is the greatest of missions, to go out and tell the world about the risen Savior, the Christ in whom believers place their trust.

In our lives, for your life.
