Message: This Is Better
John 14-16
Growing up I never heard much about the Holy Spirit and his work in our life.  We were always good to talk about the Father and the Son, but what about the Spirit?  Jesus is preparing his followers for life without him.  He keeps telling them he is going away and they cannot follow him to where he is going.  All confusing for these people who had been following Him everywhere.  Then he tells them, He is the vine and that if they do not remain in Him they can do nothing.  So I am sure the question is, if you are leaving how do we remain in you.  If you continue to obey my commands, you are still following me and if you are still following me, I will send you a helper, a counselor the Holy Spirit. The purpose of the Spirit in our life is to bring glory to God and build the church.
