Jesus Promises to Send His Holy Spirit

John 14:12-16 (The Voice)
12 I tell you the truth: whoever believes in Me will be able to do what I have done, but they will do even greater things, because I will return to be with the Father. 13 Whatever you ask for in My name, I will do it so that the Father will get glory from the Son. 14 Let Me say it again: if you ask for anything in My name, I will do it. 15 If you love Me, obey the commandments I have given you. 16 I will ask the Father to send you another Helper, the Spirit of truth, who will remain constantly with you.

God sent His Holy Spirit to live inside our hearts. God’s Spirit is referred to as the third person of the Trinity, but He is God, as well, and He is not an it. He can be grieved (offended). He abides in our hearts to comfort and guide us into all truth. He even prays for us with groanings when we do not know what words to say or what to ask for when we pray. A similar thing happens when we pray. We are weak and do not know how to pray, so the Spirit steps in and articulates prayers for us with groaning too profound for words. Romans 8:26 (The Voice)
